MORE A Sigh of Colour

I realised I had missed showing the full photograph of the previous pieces I'd given a glimpse of plus one I left out totally!  The darker green one is "Earth's Oxygen" - this was the first piece I created and using the Nancy Crow birch tree fabric started a trend! :-) 

Next in line is "Summer's Finale" - the Nancy Crow fabric was such a design inspiration I thought! LOL  I actually completed the red piece before this (Prelude to Winter) and carried the leaves into this one as it was appropriate.  Actually! When I cut it back to correct size I made a mistake and messed-up the top, right hand corner...the leaves hide a multitude of sins!!!  

Next is "Prelude to Winter" - the leaves are dimensional and mostly silk.  Hand appliqued and quilted.  This is not quite the full photograph of the quilt as I had left it in Atherton before I left and didn't realise I hadn't photographed it properly. 

Last one is "Sleeping Forest" and using the Nancy Crow fabric again for the insert. Once again, hand appliqued and quilted.  I'm hoping that I'll be able to go "home" (still feels like it after 20 years living there) for the opening of the exhibit but not sure whether I'll be able to.....hope so!
