#15 – SHARON SCHAMBER – “DREAM TREE” Applique Block or Wall Hanging from Tree of Life Series – TWO DAY CLASS TUE-WED


This Block was designed for my love of the Tree of Life designs. I have used the Paisley because it means “our time of harvest”. Through appliqué, we experience the relief and peace that creativity gives us. To embellish a fabric tree with small meaningful ideas and notions, is part of our creative journey. Working on our blocks gives us a place of refuge to be able to express our deeper feelings.
