Raw-edged fused applique
The May "Interpret This" photo challenge.
I enjoyed working on this interpretation for the month of May because it was so fitting for spring.
It reminded me of the park I went to as a child where the equipment was older and included a swing hanging from a tree. So I took the artistic license we all can tap into and added a swing to my interpretation.
It is all fused applique and I added a fused border/binding. I call it this because it is both. It acts as a binding wrapping around the quilt but the bottom of it is part of the landscape. It is machine quilted.
I added lots of layers and "snippets" of fabric for all areas adding lots of texture.
Details in the blossoms were done with a permanent fabric marker.
