|Australiana Floral Wreath|
This one is hand appliqued and quilted with trapunto.
|Unfortunately I need lessons on photography - too bright|
|Detail - this is more the colour of the piece. It does sit flat|
|Detail of left corner|
And finally a landscape I did for a conference in Denver Colorado about 2004. This one is machine needle turn applique, machine free embroidery and machine free quilted. I also added fabric painting and this caused quite a stir back then! I used corded thread embroidery for the small tree trunks and branches and heavy braids for the fence posts. The leaves of the trees were scraps, randomly cut and stitched where they fell. The large trees and the foreground were also trapuntoed to give added dimension.
ENJOY - Chris
