I had so much fun with this one! The background is hand painted and treated with salt. The leaves are either hand dyes, or two layer sheers fused together and cut with a stencil tool. The flowers are three different polyester sheers fused together and then freehand cut out using the stencil tool. (I love this technique!) They are attached in the centers only, using french knots.
The trees and tree house are decorator fabrics and thread work. The Robin is printed from a photo and then enhanced with colored pencils and stitching.
The quilt measures 12"x12"
Great challenge, Susan! I loved it!
