Foot Square # 17 - Black Tree


 I have finished block printing the background fabric.  Now, I think it needs a focal point, and I audition these screen printed trees.  This image is a ponderosa pine near my home that was killed by a wildfire a few years ago.  I think the remaining tree skeleton is especially dramatic.
 Two trees or one?  I think one.
 OK, so now - how much orange fabric does it need?  Narrow (above) or wide (below)?

The piece is machine quilted and bound by zig zagging a black cotton yarn around the outside edge.
Here is the finished piece.

Wow! You make it sound very simple, and yet the finished piece looks like a lot of time and thought went into making it! Your stamps and screens do so much to create a beautiful piece!
