I made this quilt for wdicwg in the Mini Art Quilt Swap Round 6. It's my first MAQ and I'm really happy with how it came out!

The artsy, filtered, thumbnail pic:


The tree is supposed to be inspired by Tim Burton, and the colors were specified by my partner (purple, lime green, and turquoise). I machine stitched the sky and the grass to a plain piece of muslin and used reverse applique for the tree.



I added hand-sewn embellishments to the sky and to give it a "stitched together" kind of look. Because I don't really know how to machine stitch, I embroidered a rolling landscape for the ground and then made the backing/binding one piece.



I added the loops using some cool tree branch buttons I got in a swap a while ago.

I had a lot of fun making this for the MAQ swap! Thanks for looking!

Paperbaeu, what do you mean flour painting? With flour? or flowers? Because the first sounds very interesting. :-)
