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.
