Awesome Arbutus

The Arbutus is Canada’s only native broadleaf evergreen tree. It was used by the Salish for medicinal purposes. It has no value for building as it does not grow straight. These interesting trees grow best in coastal areas as they rely on salty sea air to thrive. Techniques include raw edge, fusible appliqué, improv piecing and a variety of stitching methods.

Skill level - iintermediate.

Size - 14” by 40”.   $12
