“Three Trees” Quilt Dares to be Square


“Three Trees” is made with three trees on a background made up of six strips of green and blue batik fabrics.  The bottom of the tree trunks and the top of the tree branches end where the fabric strips meet and a blue and green yarn has been couched where the tree trunks meet the ground. The foliage of the trees has green beads hand sewn on them. The quilt is quilted with several vertical lines that go through the leaves but not the tree trunks.

The quilt is mounted on at 12”x12” wooden frame similar to how canvas is wrapped over a wooden frame. It was made for the “Dare 2B Square” art show at Village Artisans which runs through the end of October.  All pieces in the show are 12”x12” and priced at $100.

Village Artisans is located at 100 Corry St. in Yellow Springs and is open Mon.-Thurs. 11 am- 6 pm, Fri.-Sat., 11 am-7 pm and Sun. noon-6 pm. There will be an artist reception on Fri., Oct. 21 from 6-9 pm.
