Change of Seasons (2004)

For a long time, I thought about how entitites (people, plants, animals, etc) change as the year progresses. Change of Seasons was started in a class with Judy Sisneros, who is known for her landscapes. I had a firm idea in my mind of what I wanted to do when I arrived in class and could not be persuaded to create a landscape. I had been thinking about the idea of the one tree depicted in different seasons for a long time. It was a challenge to choose the correct fabric to reflect each season. I used Sisneros' 'scrunching' technique to create dimension in the bark. I also used the quilt/appliqué technique to apply the leaves and blossoms.

This quilt was shown at:
