My tree

Last month, I took pictures of my garden on a bright sunny winter afternoon. I used one of these pictures to burn a screen. I then screenprinted my fabrics with black and white fabric paint. The blue and white background fabric had been dyed beforehand with this 12x12 quilt in mind.
The piece is entirely machine quilted, but I added some hand embroidery. As a final touch, I had fun using screenprinted fabric for two pieces of the binding.

Please go have a look at the Twelve by Twelve blog to see the quilts made by the other members of the group.
I'm looking forward to our next colour scheme.
