Art Quilt: Climb into the Sky

 Tree branches have caught me up and won't let go. Am I a kite? Continuing with my interest in bare trees against the blue sky comes the latest art quilt, Climb into the Sky. The brown cotton was hand-dyed in Brazil Nut; the periwinkle cotton velvet is a combination of the colors Indigo and Periwinkle. The colors are Procion dyes, available at the family-run company, Dharma Trading; the cotton velvet (short pile, easy to sew and drinks up the dye nicely) available there as well. The side panels are overdyed: brazil nut brown over another version of periwinkle/indigo.
