Aspen are the most widely distributed tree species in North America, ranging from Alaska to Newfoundland and down the Rocky Mountains to Mexico. Utah and Colorado are home to the largest portion of natural acreage of aspen in the World.
They are the most visible of western North American hardwoods providing wildlife habitat, livestock forage, specialty forest products, and highly desirable scenery.
In the fall, when all is so gray, the woven colors of Aspen trees enliven my senses and makes me happy. I thought of creating an art work, honoring Aspen trees and bringing them to life with a breath of color, and then 'Color of Aspen' was born!
This work is an original piece created using the Confetti Technique of piecing.
'Color of Aspen' was one of my pieces at the North West Quilters Guild Expo which took place from the 10th to 12th of March 2011, it was a head turner making me very proud!
