The pictures don’t do my quilt justice…I am just going to say. I did very little marking and just let my mind wander while quilting. I needed the creative process to just unfold as I was going along. It’s a funny thing because when I pieced this quit I had no idea what it would look like or what I would do with it.
But when I pulled it out last week…I could see a huge tree in the center. When I pieced it I made sure all of the birds faced the same way. I quilted it pretty heavily …and let everything kind of mesh together…so you maybe cant see where something starts & something else begins….but it’s my own quilt and the process of quilting it was more important to me than the end result…..because I sort of knew that was going to happen while I was going along. I am also going to go back and fill in the area between the chains on the tree swing.
There is a buzzing bee, a dragon fly, and a butterfly flying in the swirls. Down by the ground of the tree is grass & flowers. roots underneath…of course.
I think I need some more modern quilts with lots of negative space. 🙂 This was fun. I love it.
