Counting Down...

Or...Blog Post 998 - WIP Wednesday Edition

Remember this work in the C&G?

Well, here's what landed on my design wall yesterday:



It's "Tree Line" and when finished will measure in the 18" by 24" range.

Materials:

  • Sky: hand-dyed semi-sheer fabric of unknown origin;
  • Ground:
    • Brown: commercial cotton;
    • Green: hand-dyed muslin;
  • Tree trunks: commercial cotton.

Right now the trees need to be fused down, and then the stitching and quilting begins!

For the curious: the photos to the left of the piece are up there for inspiration for up-coming pieces. Both were taken near my home.  The hot pink "M" I found a few years ago at a thrift shop and claimed it in a "Mary Tyler Moore" moment!

I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday at The Needle and Thread Network, so when you have a moment, grab a cuppa and take a look!

I always like to see how things develop and your treeline holds lots of interest!

You certainly captured the essence of those birches, they will be great with added quilting.
