Just finished this small (13″ x 11″) landscape quilt, inspired by a cloudy October day. This mixed media wall hanging features machine applique with monofilament, free motion quilting, free motion embroidery, Prismacolor markers, and Prismacolor colored pencils. The clouds were the last thing I did, even after the binding was applied.
The three leaves are hanging on to the tree just like the ones which remained through the entire last winter through wind, rain, and snow, on a tree right outside my front door. I was amazed at their resilience… so here they are.
I embroidered the foliage and grass, and added the colors with markers.The tree has a bit of a Halloween look, too, perfect for this time of year. My family liked it so much that I am keeping it for us.
Enjoy your day!
