Landscape Quiltie

I'm a member of a group called Fibre Fever, hosted by Ati. Every month for a year we swap a fibre book page, size 6 x 6". Each member has chosen a theme for her book. This page I sent to Claudia in Austria. Her theme is"Landscapes". The background landscape is freehand pieced, the tree is made with a new technique for me. I fixed a piece of musling in an embroidery hoop, cut a square of the fabric, and sew the trunk and branches with free motion zigzag over the opening before it was cut out from the muslin. I used a variegated thread, also in the bobbin. I used a few hand stitches to keep the tree in place over the background landscape.
