The David Hockney Challenge was just the beginning…..

Three Big Trees…..

…… Mary Jackson.

 This work in progress takes its inspiration from DH’s subject big trees, in particular three big trees. Unlike the four smaller quilts of the seasons of a tree, I struggled with what fabric to use. The trees were easy as I had two fabulous fabrics and these determined the background colour. I am trying to use patterned commercial fabrics throughout. I am sure that DH would use patterned paint if it were available. Just look at the undergrowth DH paints in his forest pictures.

The quilt has progressed beyond this picture. I have bagged it out following the technique taught me by Katherine Guerrier and am part way through quilting it.
