I'm not a fan of pictoral quilts but had to make this for a dear friend's birthday gift (next week)... he took an amazing photo of the sunset over the Mohave Desert and posted it on Facebook. My comment? It's a quilt!
The rhythm of nature is often reflected in the rolling hills and layers of color that we see here in the mountains. Simply layered applique of my newest batch of hand dyes (actually done for this project), with machine quilting.
I love Andy Goldsworthy and have walked his Stone River on the Stanford University campus. His books adorn my bookshelf (eye candy!). But this photo spoke so deeply to me that I just had to follow it's lead.
Comments of course, are welcome!
