A wall hanging I made based on a photo of a local historic site, Campbell's Covered Bridge two autumn's ago.  The structure is made of various commercial fabrics fused in place and enhanced with fabric paint and stitching. The autumn leaves are made using the 'confetti' technique of tiny bits of fabric fused in place using a granular adhesive, Bo Nash.  Some stitching using various colors of polyester and rayon threads and meander quilting finished the project.  The Island Batik border matched the leaves perfectly.

This is so attractive.  The trees are fantastic,  also the covered Bridge is great.

Thank you very much.  I was touched that a descendant of the Campbell family saw the pic on Facebook and asked if she might be able to purchase it. Now to set a price . . . I am better at making these than pricing them! LOL!

The way the border print ties into the leaves you did with the confetti technique is wonderful! The black border to focus is well balanced, too, with the deep darks in the structure. I'm with you on the challenge of setting a price...good luck!

Lovely, esp for this time of year. You did a great job choosing the border fabric as it looks like a continuation of the leaves. Well done.

Thank you for the kind comments. Yes, this batik worked perfectly as the border to continue the leaf color.
