Finished Sequoia

I continued working on the sequoia tree and finished it up yesterday.

This is the picture that I took and worked from.

I tweaked it on the computer to lighten it up some …

This small quilt only measures 8” X 10 1/2” and is made from cotton fabric and 80/20 batting. I used Superior’s King Tut thread for the quilting and thread painting and finished the back with “fast finished triangles” for mounting.

  6. So beautiful! We have visited the redwood groves in California twice recently, and I wondered if I could quilt a picture like this, but I haven't done it. Yours is wonderful!

  7. What a wonderful quilt, and such a great technique. I think you captured it so well with the sun coming through the needles, the perspective of the height!
