Quilting the layers together is complete. The trunks now have their curve and the background has texture. The ferns and shrubs have some dimension. Paint has been applied to the trunks, the foreground, and the ferns. At the moment I can't get far enough away to get a straight on photo, but here it is sitting on a table. The next part will be to construct some branches.
This photo shows some of the quilting in the background sky.
