When this blog first began, it featured all things quilty and was titled Art From The Heart. Years go by, interests morph, horizons expand, and all of a sudden you realize you are a quilter, yes...but also a spinner, weaver, knitter, crocheter, mixed media, fiber artist. The art is still from the heart, but the new name reflects my excitement with all things fiber! It's Fantabulous!
I had such fun and freedom making this quilt. I free-hand cut all the leaves. The pattern is leaf on leaf on square, all stitched down with satin stitch. Heavily quilted, with the tree trunk and limbs 'flattened' by the quilting. This was the quilt I was sewing the sleeve on while sitting in my vendor's booth at Art in the Park and a lady watching me sew said, "When you are finished with that, I want it!" That was fun! If you 'click' on the picture above, the enlargement will let you see the swirly tree quilting.
