This original tree of life art quilt is created from my own hand-dyed fabrics. I recycle old linens to create my colorful backgrounds and appliques. Each element is stitched in place, and the entire piece is finished with elaborate hand-guided machine stitching, called free-motion quilting. The sewing machine needle becomes my pencil as I fill in every inch with details. Each piece is then mounted to a canvas and framed. Also available as a print.
