We quilters love texture!
Have you ever taken a look at the texture of tree bark?
Lots of grainy texture on the inside and outside of the bark
I found this incredible bark with swirls of texture!

Check out the cool textures on the inside of the tree bark
The texture is 3D with hills and valleys...
Which begs me to experiment with it for printing on fabric!
There are several ideas running through my mind right now...
I brought enough home to do a few experiments with paints
But....now I better get back to work...
This is where I have been spending most of my time lately
Each morning we come up to the woodpile and split for a few hours
After 14 hours this is our pile:
Just think, If I hadn't been spending so much time splitting wood...
I never would have noticed the cool patterns and textures inside the tree bark!
Inspiration is everywhere.....just keep your eyes open.
I will post images of the Bark/Fabric Printing Experiment soon.
