This is a closeup of the collage for the quilt show. As you can see I took the Pear Tree part of the title very seriously. I had a lot of trouble with the background, it was just too busy, it kept detracting from the pears. I took it to group and everyone agreed it should be painted with acrylics, Carmen suggested yellow ochre, which I would not have thought of and that was it. Kathy gave me the wonderful orange and brown paper with the great design that really brought the piece together.
