These are not tame trees. This art quilt was inspired by Van Morrison’s song, “Moon Dance.”
I imagine trees dancing in a shower of
starlike leaves, as the moon circles them. What is the source of light?
The background fabric is a length of hand-dyed cotton cloth that I bought and had in my stash
for a few years before deciding this was the time to use it. I couldn’t bear to cut it up.
I suspect many quilters feel the same way about some of their fabric.
