I was inspired by the impressionistic quilt of red poppies which appeared in this gallery. However, my base material was 70 weight pellon. I applied small pieces of fabric to the pellon, trapped them with tulle and used invisible thread to nail it all down. The sky is very special to me. I used long strips of white organdy and small pieces of light blue batik. The longhorn cow and calf were made as thread painting on osnaburg, cut out then appliqued onto the picture. I used polyester embroidery thread to add the details to the background trees, foreground tree and the flowers and grasses. Finally, I wrapped the picture around a stretched canvas which is 11" X 14".
