Quilted Wall Hanging Art Quilt Birch Trees & Forest Flowers Original Landscape Wallhanging Fiber Art by Sally Manke Office Decor Forest created for your home or office decor.
Arcadia Dunes Preserve is a continual source of inspiration for my art quilts and this one is no exception. Amazing stands of white birch flow through the preserve making the perfect backdrop to a forest floor filled with blooms. Catching this view during the annual fall color shows just adds to the beauty.
Thousands of pieces of batik fabric are confetti cut, then “painted” on quilt backing and batting. Fussy cut trees trunks were added before covering quilt with tulle. Machine quilting with colorful thread is completed to hold all those tiny pieces in place. Several additional trees are appliqued over this base layer. Additional quilting is then completed with a large variety of traditional and metallic quilting threads to add texture and depth.
The depth of color and texture created with this technique make it my favorite form of fiber art. This original fiber art wall hanging was created from photos I took on the Arcadia Dunes property near Arcadia, Michigan, where I am a trail volunteer.
Wouldn’t this make a perfect wall accent to remind you of your time up north?
