Shuswap Landscape

This fibre art landscape is the view of Shuswap Lake looking west towards Scotch Creek and Sorrento. It measures 22" x 35" and is constructed of hand-dyed and hand-painted fabrics. A photo of the actual view follows. The art quilt was commissioned by the home owner.

There is additional texture in the foreground trees, created by the use of cheesecloth, tulle and little snips of fabric that were stitched to represent shrubs. The sky has a layer of organza over the surface.

This wall quilt has been delivered to the owner where it looks beautiful hanging on the gorgeous log wall. SOLD
