Anyway, we were to create a 12 inch by 12 inch quilt made using paper, fabric backed paper and stitching of some sort. The quilt was to have a hanging pocket on the back.
I used my favorite technique of paint scrapped collage for the blue background and for the leaves. I tore leaf shapes out of the green and then stitched the leaves on by hand using embroidery floss. For the tree trunk I painted browns over collages security enbvelope interior designs and stitched the trunk down using my sewing machine. The bird was done using a gesso wash over collaged sheet music and adding oil pastel highlights. The bird was also machine stitched.
Here is a close up.
I folded the leaf shapes to give the quit even more dimension.
I backed the piece with a purchased batik fabric. I hang the quilt from a piece of driftwood that I picked up on the Cape last summer. I have picked out a spot to hang my bird so we can all enjoy it!
