Statement: Fall was created for friends. The design evolved after interviews with them, leading to photographs of nature and trees and a desire to incorporate the richness of a patched background. The quilt was created in layers, moving from the background, to the trees and finally to the details of leaves, rocks and other embellishments. The process was fascinating and involved a lot of “percolating time” before final technical and design decisions were made.

Materials/Techniques: Machine pieced, hand, and machine applique, thread work, trapunto, couching, tulle overlay, machine quilted.
