Gerrie's post today prodded me to get this small quilt done today. Our art group, the Pointless Sisters, is making an art quilt as a raffle quilt for our "parent" guild, and the idea is to have a scattering of Sonoma County themed post cards. So, we were given the task ... if we chose to accept it ... [hum Mission Impossible theme music here] ... of making a 12" x 18" quilted image of something local.
I wasn't going to do this, actually, thinking that I had enough other things to accomplish before Tuesday's meeting. But Gerrie's beautiful one
One of my favorite things about this area of Northern California is the sight of the stately old oak trees on the hills. And since I'm apparently in a silhouette-at-night sort of mood (hey! A series!) I thought I'd do this. It's simple, but I like it.
Here's a detail of the quilting.
The opportunity quilt committee (three of our art group members) will look at all of the options and choose an attractive assortment based on what works together. It'll be fun to see what folks did. Stay tuned!
And thanks, Gerrie, for the inspiration!
