Art Quilt Forest: Ruth Treon's Tree
One of the things I think which was difficult for our little art Quilt group is to figure out how much or how little to make our blanks.
Compare Ruth Treon's branches which flow off the space, with Gwen's (Here on Feb. 1)which were well.....truncated!
Ruth also packed her quilt bits in a shoe box to pass around.
As I mentioned, Susan Pickrell decided that the boxes needed embellishment....and she really had a heyday with Ruth's box. The cover was covered with some trapunto quilting. Inside, Susan made a yarn cover (I don't know if she knitted it or crocheted it) for her camera and stuck in some other interesting things in case someone wanted to use them on Ruth's work.
I think, but I'm not sure, that Linnette Vagedes added the pieced quilt...Becky Goodwin added the angelina frost which I think turned out great, Gwen Brown the painted area in the sky, and Jo Heffner made the rabbit and the rabbit footprints.
