Pecan Tree Quilt Project

Happy Spring everyone!

Today I'm sharing some photos from one of the projects I've been working on. I used to work on one project at a time, but lately I've been working on different projects, off and on. It is a different approach but it is enjoyable in its own way!

Here are some photos from my Pecan Tree in Winter project:

It started with a drawing I made from my studio window of our Pecan tree during the Arizona winter months. Here is a photo of our Pecan and Pear tree.  (I edited out the Pear tree in front, and only included the Pecan tree, also the drawing was made at a slightly different angle.)

Winter pecan and pear tree in our yard.

Here is a photo of the drawing I made. I first made a pencil drawing, then traced it onto canvas, using black and blue fabric markers. I plan to add machine needle felted embellishment, and perhaps some stitching on top of the design. I'll then cut out the tree portion and applique it onto a background.

I've been working on a sky background using hexies (English paper pieced hexagons).

Some of the hexies laid out on my cutting table.

Close up of the hexies (hexagons), I used snowflake 
fabrics, hand painted fabrics, and will also 
use some blue solids with a texture to them.

I'm planning to add some shadows on the ground, as well in the design. We will see how it all looks when it is completed! Also, some additional details, which I will share as it is completed.

I enjoy imagining a design, and bringing it to fruition! 

Hope you enjoy seeing my progress, 

Happy Creating,

Denise A. Buchwalter-Losczyk
