Faerie Forest Revealed

"Faerie Forest"
20" by 20" 

 I made this for the SewBatik Challenge at this year's NQA show.  I used the challenge fabric for the big tree.  The background is one of my hand-dyes that looks like a forest.


The door and window boxes in the stone cottage are also from the challenge fabric.  I hand embroidered the flowers for the trumpet vines above the stone wall next to the cottage and the little flowers in the window boxes.


I hand embroidered the bunnies and little purple flowers.


The birds were also hand embroidered, then appliquéd to the quilt.

Beth! I used Angelina fibers tucked behind the raw-edge appliqué leaves for her wings.

This turned out beautifully. I love the little sanctuary/cottage, looks like a peaceful place to meditate. Your flower fairy is fabulous, very well done. I like the Angelina fibers, I just bought some for the first time and will be learning how to use them. They look great used this way.
