Leaves and Twigs Progress

I finished the quilting yesterday. Yeah! Next, I need to get the Tyvek leaves sewn on. I am going to make cottonwood leaves. That is the only deciduous tree that grows near my house (mostly Ponderosa Pine forest here). I began this quilt when the cottonwood leaves were turning gold last fall. Now they are just coming on. Time to put closure on this piece!

The background fabric is a grouping of various gelatin prints I made using leaves - mostly native plants and weeds growing around our place. I tried to take a close up, but my images were out of focus - not sure why - will try again later.

I have a lot going on today, so won't get anything done in the studio till Monday or Tuesday.
