Abstract Trees

The October theme for Sky is the Limit was abstract. After I had made the background of commercial fabric I played around a bit with paper shapes. When I had a composition which I liked I cut these shapes out of hand dyed fabrics and fused this down onto the background. My original composition was not this one, when I was quilting it it looked much more pleasing this way. And it also gave it it's name: Abstract Trees. As always size is 12"x12".
My theme for this year for Voyage is trees, so I have an idea for my 6th quilt for this group as well :-).

Wow! I love how you got the idea of trees with nothing natural in the composition.
