This is my take on a Tafoni Granite weathering structure in Idaho.
I used only my handyed fabrics, and satin sitched every piece onto the batting. I intend to do a lot of quilting after facing the edges, and backing, using the pillow case method.
I will have to wait a while to do it though, as my therapist told me I was 'pushing it' too hard too soon :-(
I would love critiques and suggestions for quilting...Should I quilt the rocks (they are already quilted in outline with the black). I will definitely quilt the sand and sky.
It measures 22"x291/2".
This was really challenge and a stretch for me Kathy...LOL I tend to work most of the time as close to the real colors as I can get. It was so much fun once I abandoned myself to playing with colors. Thank you Kathy!
Here is the quilted and finished piece! What do you think, does it make a difference?
