Habitat loss for trees and wild animals is an escalating problem in the ongoing urban sprawl of Washington, D.C. into Northern Virginia where I live. The woods surrounding my house offer sanctuary for me and many creatures. Fall foliage provided both inspiration for the imagery and the leaves for printing this quilt.

Sadly, new condominiums are quickly eliminating my neighboring woods. Using the model set by the Nature Conservancy, our best defense against habitat loss is to purchase and nurture the land and participate in local, public re-zoning meetings to raise concerns.
