At the Fall Paducah AQS show 2019, I took a class by Marina Landi from Brazil – Landscape Fiber Collage: Create with Wool, Thread, and more. We started the class with a tree photo printed on fabric. Then we played with lots of fiber to make the foliage for the tree.
We made small circles with the fiber using a stick and then placed it on the tree – using misty fuse. I think that I made my foliage too large for the size of the trunk. It was just a 3 hour class so I just finished the foliage in the class. We were suppose to add gray and black fibers for the ground but I thought it was too dark so I added green yarns and fibers for the ground. I also added some black stitching to the trunk to make it look larger. I put a piece of black tulle over the piece and then did free motion quilting. I trimmed about 3 inches off on one side. I added piping to the piece using techniques that I had learned from an online course with Philippa Naylor. Now one of my projects from Fall Paducah is complete. Yeh. Keep having fun sewing and quilting. Donna
