This is an original wall hanging inspired by my Tree of Life quilt, with a Peace Sign incorporated into the branches. Keeping with the peace with nature theme, all the fabrics used in this piece are environmental fibers. The background and reverse, is hemp and organic cotton, with the sage green tree applique, a hemp/cotton fabric. Bamboo batting is used between the front and back to give it more texture.
The applique is cut and sewn by hand, using embroidery stitches to accent the individual branches. The background quilting is also sewn by hand, in an echo quilting pattern . The only machine work is one row on the binding, then turned and hand stitched.
The quilting techniques are not true Hawaiian quilting, but have inspired my interpretations of their unique methods.
Dimensions-22 1/2" X 22 1/2" with 1 1/2" loops for hanging.
