Back to Roots

The roots for the pomegranate tree intrigue me. As the brown fabric is appliquéd one strip on top of another, the overlapping layers (which I didn't trim back) allow for cutting and reverse appliqué.
And this needle turn appliqué will have more raw edges contrasting with the smooth turned edges.
Although I've used this appliqué technique frequently, each time I discover new ways to play 
with the fabric--fortunately, or I'd die of boredom.
