I design art quilts, table runners, table toppers, mug rugs, place mats, wall hangings, and quilts and sell them on Etsy. I sew from chosen patterns and well as create unique patterns for custom and commission work.

I started out making the trunk of the tree. I wanted to make something that combined all my stitiches. I really love how it turned. I then made the leaves and the acorn and appliqued all three to the background fabric. But the spot between the branch and the acorn bothered me. Even though I had quilted leaf shapes into the background it still looked blank, The spot spoke ti me and I quilted a poem unto the fabric.
