Pine Beetle Blues Detail

Canadian pine forests have become infested and killed by rice-sized insects called Mountain Pine Beetles. The forest industry, which employs thousands of Canadians, has been devastated by the beetle invasion. The insect leaves blue dye behind in the wood as the tree dies. Thus¦ Pine Beetle Blues.

Techniques: original wood prints, speedball dyes, machine-pieced, machine-quilted
