Jeweled Leaves 34” x 45” 5- 2017
Longarm machine quilting of a leave pantograph (“Falling Leaves” edge to edge design by Sophie Collier of Sew-Phie Quilts). Additional free motion swirls and “twiggy” embellishment quilting has been added for texture and detail of the forest floor. Swarovski Crystals add sparkling dew drops. Leaves and swirls are hand painted with iridescent “Shiva Artist’s Paintstix”, invoking my artistic license with the jeweled colors that I have chosen for my leaves. Thin striped faux piping accents the outer edge.
**I live in “The Last Green Valley” surrounded by forest and nature. In the fall, trees boast spectacular colors, then drop their leaves to the forest floor
