Tree of Life: From Pearl Sceviour: I'd had to put some thinking into this before contacting you as I wasn't even sure how to approach it, but a few days of staring do wonders! My first decision will be to decide if I need to scale it up for turned edge - hand appliqué but I think, if I do, it might be a maximum of 25%. I've worked with a lot of very small pieces before. A bit more staring required there. I expect there may be some embroidery of stems as 1/8" is about as small a bias stem as can be expected. The black background makes it difficult to photograph. It's hand appliquéd using Cantik Batiks (Canadian line of fabrics) to the same scale as the original embroidery pattern. While not visible, the background is quilted with 13 maple leaves.
