On a background of eco-printed cotton, I have screen printed an image of trees on the earth. Surrounding that image are lines that are drawn in ink, paint and thread . . . holding it all in with freehand thread painting of the words HOPE ... UNDERSTANDING ... COMFORT ... PEACE ... JOY ... NURTURE.
Nature needs our nurturing and understanding and in return we are provided comfort, peace and joy. This small art quilt (approximately 9" x 12") is backed with white wool fabric and it has been hand stitched around some of the prominent leaf prints and seed stitched over the majority of the background. A hanging sleeve allows it to hang from a dowel or a branch.
