Tree Project, International Fiber Collaborative

In 2009 I had the opportunity to participate in the Tree Project, sponsored by the International Fiber Collaborative. I had seen their prior project A Gas Station covered in quilt blocks in a quilting magazine and was fascinated with the thinking out side the box. So I contacted the email and followed the directions I received.
One can find the most interesting articles on the web.. and an opportunity to be part of something fascinating.. The Tree Project contributions came from 23 countries, and 39 U.S. states. The tree is located in Big Springs International Park in Huntsville, Alabama.

I was excited when a volunteer on the project emailed me to say, she just loved my leaf. I appreciated the fact that she took the time to contact me. Making art is so personal and to have some one appreciate my little leaf was over whelming.

"Much like a live tree is interdependent on it's leaves and roots for survival, societies are interdependent on the greater whole family unites, communities, and countries.

The project that is in the works now, is the Dream Rocket.
