I struggled with this theme at first - really working to figure out what said "Time" to me that did not involve clocks and calendars. I then stumbled on the quote from Warren Buffet " Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago". That was a head smacking moment - of course a tree. The tree of life, a tree with rings, many trees endure long past ourselves. This quote also echos a story in the Talmud when an older man is asked why he is planting a Carob tree when it won't bear fruit for 70 years when he won't be alive. The man explains that it is for his grandchildren since he was able to enjoy carob from trees planted before he was born.
This quilt is gallery wrapped. The image is a shade tree that I took in Brenham, TX several years ago. I manipulated it in several iPad apps that I learned about in an on-line class with Susie Monday. The quote fabric that I added as an applique was created in photoshop elements (which I took a class on from Kerby and Lura Smith in March). I printed it onto Electric Quilt Fabric using an Epson Photoprinter 3880 and then I quilted this piece on craft felt before mounting it on the frame.
