A Forest of Fabric

26 Nov

A friend made my week yesterday when she asked how much I would charge to make her a quilt. I know just how much I don’t know about making quilts, and my craftsmanship leaves a lot to be desired, but I was honored nonetheless. Since she has taken up painting in the last year, I thought a trade might be a great way to share our new-found art skills with one another. Much of her artwork is beautifully themed on trees, so that is the theme of our swap. I’ve been scouring the web for fabric featuring trees and thought I’d share the early results. Each of these fabrics are fairly different in style, and some are more literal than others, but I’m still very open in the style of this woodland woven quilt, so who knows what the end result will be!
