Here is the quilted top of the wall hanging that will be given to a corporate donor for their large donation to Wellspring.

I still have to back it, bind it and label it.

I used a very dark blue background and used acrylic paints with textile medium to color the sky as well as paint the distant houses and and
snow. The thread painted the trees and shrubs. The children were painted and then fused and satin stitched to the ice. I thread painted the tall trees in the foreground and appliqued the bushes. I hope you like it.
