Materials/Techniques: Other than the borders, this quilt is a picture fused from a variety of fabrics, some cut into very small pieces, then quilted to give it depth and durability. Details have been enhanced with colored inks and other color mediums.

Artist's Statement: One day when I was sitting at my desk staring out into space, I realized that on the crest of the hill across the road from my house, there was a tree sitting in the middle of the view bracketed by the trees still bare from the winter. The grassy areas had started to show green and the fruit trees were blooming. The tall ornamental grass in the corner of the yard was waving in the breeze, but still the lone tree was the main feature of the view. After sketching (very roughly) what I saw, I started putting it into a fabric picture and surrounded it with the windowsill and frame.

Dedication: To the nature lovers.
