Quilts

Years ago I made a quilted hanging I call Inner Leaf. It is a closeup of the underside of a leaf and is done in hand dyed fabrics.
This month I picked the word for http://fiberactions.blogspot.com/  Environment. Leaves and trees are always what comes to mind when I think of it.

I chose to do the same design, but this time by felting it. The background is wool yardage. After felting it, I used Machine stitching to accent the sections.

Here is a closeup.


The woods dark and lush
Provide food and homes.
Protect the wild woods.

Both are beautiful; I particularly like the gorgeous leaf quilt - love the piecing of the dyed fabrics!

Both of your quilts are beautiful. It's fun to revisit a design with a new technique. Great job!

Your felted leaf is so beautiful. I have a falting machine that I want to try this. So great!
