I (Sue Penn) began painting trees like this several years ago. They are some of my customer’s favorites. I love creating them because they are so full of life to me. Incorporating my hand printed papers as the leaves and using my own stencil designs in the background makes each tree different. I started this fabric collection with the tree painting and decided we needed the leaves alone in this group and the stencil medallions work great as both a tone on tone and a multi-colored print. It will be wonderful to see what quilters will create from this collection!
