The woods near my home have a nice variety of tree species, but beeches are rare there. I had been watching a sweet young beech sapling for a few years, keeping climbing ivy off it, when disaster literally struck it.
Broken Beech: What Was, Will Be
The National Parks Centennial Quilts Project - 177 quilts about the flora, fauna, and landscapes of the National Parks - was headed by Donna DeSoto. Such a fun opportunity, so I contributed two! Each quilt in the project is a landscape, flora, or fauna from a U.S. National Park.
These three quilts were made for the “Fly Me to the Moon” art quilt project. Its goal is to celebrate the upcoming anniversary of the first Apollo moon landing, and all things lunar. I’ve loved the night sky since I was about 8 years old, and got a telescope when I was around 12. So one quilt wasn’t enough - I made three!
