I was able to finish up my tree quilt this past week. I am calling it, "You can see the stars." If you remember, the inspiration for the piece is a Persian proverb quoted in a report of Greg Mortenson's Central Asia Institute foundation – When it is dark, you can see the stars.
The fabric is hand-dyed and comes from Lisa Walton whom I am currently taking a beading class from. I am really pleased with the way the tree turned out and wish to acknowledge Anne Maundrell whose art works introduced me to the thread work approach to creating leaves.
