Reincarnation


Here is the scenery at the next level. So far the sky, hills and first row of forest are sewn down. The rest is still quite likely to move around. The big black tree is leaning into the picture that much to cover the seam between the two pieces of sky fabric. The fabric on the left was given to me but there wasn't enough to do the whole sky. The rest is one of my hand dyes. I don't have any fabric that I could really call crimson except a very Christmassy one with gold snowflakes on it. I am thinking of doing some leaves with that snip and glue down technique. I've seen it on some quilts and really like the look of it. It would bring the foreground forward nicely.

I think snip and glue leaves would look nice. You definitely need some crimson, though...

Oh yes the snip and glue thing sounds great. No idea how you do it, but I can imagine the effect. Very cool!

I like your hand-dyed sky best...looks more like our Autumn sky here.
The red leaves will be a great addition.
Lovely quilt...great ideas!

Is the back of the Christmassy crimson fabric suitable?

You continue to amaze and inspire me with your work.

I think you need to add 'jane' after forest and give this one to me. :D

It's going to be wonderful!
