Boneyard Beach

Boneyard Beach - Hunting Island State Park - The quilt is based on a photo I took of a large uprooted tree/turned to driftwood at Hunting Island State Park in South Carolina. The park is known for its driftwood collections. I wanted to capture the different textures of the tree bark, roots, plants and sand. At a Ricky Tims\' individual workshop retreat in La Veta, Ricky suggested using the Scribble Applique technique. You cut out your applique shapes and glue them to a background fabric. You sew them on by "scribble quilting" around the edges. This creates raw edge applique with raveled edges - outlined by the dark fabric backing that is allowed to show through. I added an extra layer of wool batting under the tree and roots and then a cotton batting for the whole quilt. Different color layers of tulle were placed over the sand and shadows to create shading effects. An interesting technique that I\'ll want to try on some other projects.?
