“Fall” finished!

I added what turned out to be a hill to the bottom of this wallhanging.  The original made me think that the tree was just floating.  I thought about putting the grey straight across the bottom, then decided to echo the idea of the angle similar to the tree crown.  It ended up looking like a hill, which is just fine to me!  I think this is my most successful foray into “modern” quilting yet!
