Mirkwood II by Ricky Tims
Click image for detailed view
My two favorite features on my mountain parcel is Autumn Rock, the magnificent outcrop and a stand of gamble oaks that I call Mirkwood. I've made several small art quilts based on this little magical forest. This particular quilt was made in 2021. It features confetti appliqué and the quilting/stitching is a very large irregular jump stitch.
The Spring Fire burned through Mirkwood in 2018, but fortunately most of the burn was in the lower grasses. About 1/3 of the gamble oaks were lost, but about 2/3 of it recovered.
