Pacific Northwest Landscape

Jennifer Whitted
Three Dimensional
17" x 19"

The scene was created by layering painted felt with a layer of painted organza and adding cotton fabric that looks like rocks. 

The edges were then heated and melted to create dimension and an interesting edge to the sides and top of the scene. 

Another piece of painted felt lies along the bottom of the scene and has been heated to give it an appearance of mossy ground.

The scene is mounted on a piece of blue with purple and green accented Batik fabric. 

The tree is created with painted threads, artificial stems and a piece of driftwood at the base.

There are other three dimensional elements of green artificial fern like pieces along the edges and another piece of actual driftwood affixed to the surface.

The piece has stitched thread work and is machine quilted. 

The bottom edge has a curve cut for accent.

There is a hanging sleeve attached to the upper back side for a dowel and only requires one small nail to hang.

There is a signed and dated signature label by the artist attached to the back of the quilt.

Materials Used: Batik fabric, cotton fabric, felt,organza,silk florals,driftwood
