This piece began as an exploration of Ruth McDowellâ€™s piecing methods. I chose a simple subject and isolated it, wanting to focus on the branchâ€™s integral beauty. By making the leaves appear â€˜larger than lifeâ€™ I was able to highlight the many colour variations in this single branch of leaves.
Techniques: machine pieced, hand appliquÃ©d and machine quilted.
