This piece began as an exploration of Ruth McDowellÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s piecing methods. I chose a simple subject and isolated it, wanting to focus on the branchÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s integral beauty. By making the leaves appear Ã¢â‚¬Ëœlarger than lifeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ I was able to highlight the many colour variations in this single branch of leaves.
Techniques: machine pieced, hand appliquÃƒÂ©d and machine quilted.
