This is another favourite piece. In a group of other fibre artists in my community, we gave ourselves one year to do a piece with ‘Trees’ as a theme. It took me most of that time to figure out what I could do that would be ‘trees’ without being the same old. In yoga one day, while doing the tree pose, this image came to me. Another day, I remembered something about shakras. With friends help, we found all the chakra jewels. The quilting represents the meaning of the shakras. Trapunto roots and stab stitching complete the image.
