Avenue of the Giants

57”x 58”  2015

One of the most beautiful drives through the Redwoods is called the Avenue of the Giants.  During one of our stops along the way we took a photo of this scene.  I decided to slice it into sections and display as a whole.  I love these redwood scenes.  You'd think I'd get tired of them...but I don't

Techniques: Mosaic Picture Piecing using a picture as a photomap. Trees are made of many strips of different fabrics. Heavily quilted.

Here is a detail shot - I use many bright colors of thread to help "paint" the picture.av detail 800

this is a photo of the back, it shows some of the stitching.
