Design Concept

This was my second version of the black tree appliqued over a colorful background. This was eventually made into a pattern. The background fabric was hand painted with fiber reactive dyes. The tree and border were cut out of a single piece of black fabric and fused to the background. The edges were finished with a very narrow black zigzag stitch. The quilting added more branches to the tree and carried some of the colors out into the border.
