11.5" x 17"
I had a little time this weekend to play around with scraps and my sketchbook. I've said it many times that Fall is my favorite season, and I have yards and yards of hand dyed fabric in its vibrant colors. After pulling out the background fabric, I knew I wanted to recreate a scene in my sketchbook of a girl walking along a path, enjoying the crisp air and crunch of leaves beneath her feet.
The I started with the trees, which are a rubber stamp. I handcut a simply girl, boots, and coat using small scraps of fabric backed with fusible web.
I sandwiched the top, then did some thread sketching around the trees, girl, and made leaves with red, gold, and green thread. I usually add a caption to these mini "girl" quilts, but haven't thought of a good one for this yet. Any ideas?
