The Copper River Red Salmon are considered the world’s best eating salmon. They spawn on the glacier fed Copper River which is one of the swiftest and most rugged rivers in Alaska. Because it is so swift, the returning salmon must store extra fat and oils in order to survive the trip to their spawning grounds.
Quilt is all machine stitched hand dyed and commercial fabrics. Most comments/suggestions I have received the past few years have been I don't quilt enough. This time I listened as the there is very little that is not quilted.
I spent quite a bit of time exploring the web for Art Deco ideas before deciding to celebrate the return of the Alaska Red Salmon. Thank you Carol for hosting yet another inspiring challenge producing a nice variety of great quilts.
Comments and Suggestions are greatly appreciated.
