I was inspired by Noriko Endo to create a woodsy scene, using tiny scraps of fabrics.
The "forest floor" also has candy wrapper, scraps from a book page, fabric leaves, and raffia. I tried adding glitter but the netting wouldn't contain it, (and I ended up with glitter everywhere!) I'll add a few gold seed beeds.
A scrap of salvage found it's way into the mix and provides the name for the piece, "Nature's Glory."
Noriko had added a jagged white stitch to one side of the trees to show light. I added a gold zigzag stitch as I'm still not comfortable with dropping the feed dogs.
There are several layers ... I actually started by painting batting. I then added the scraps and trapped them with green and white netting and machine stitching. Then I fused the tree and house shapes, using a satin stitch around the larger shapes.
Then I read where Noriko uses layers of soft black tulle, so naturally I had to go buy some and used that over the whole quilt and added the final quilting with monofiliment thread. I left the edge irregular because I didn't want to confine "woodsy scene."
