A Walk in the Forest by Karen Lane

We are delighted to showcase this beautiful piece designed and made by Karen Lane, Feltmaker and Textile Artist. The close-up photograph helps to show the exquisite attention to detail Karen has achieved on the ferns and tree trunks.

In her own words,┬áKaren describes how it was created –

“This art quilt is 20″ x 16” and was made primarily with 70gms Lutradur, cut using a fine tip soldering iron and painted with acrylics. The woodland is constructed from six layers, each layer is painted in a slightly lighter shade than the next, working from dark to light, to create the illusion of perspective. Once the trees had been machine sewn in place, I added Lutradur ferns and hand stitched colonial knots to represent lichen/moss at the base of the trees.” You can see more of Karen’s work by visiting her website https://lincsinstitches.com/about/
