The Old Oak - Memorialized in fabric a textile quiltart wall hanging is an asymmetrical 50 by 36 in one of my largest pieces. Planted by native Americans; after almost 200 years, numerous prairie fires, a civil war, countless storms, a lightening strike brought down the great tree. Machine pieced hand dyed linen, leather roots, silk fibers and sheers, hand quilted, embroidered and beaded, I put love in every stitch. This majestic tree is now a decaying stump returning all the nutrients back to the soil. Embellished with hand stitching featuring hand dyed silk and cotton yarns
