The view from above
Here's a shot of my newest project in the works.
I had this idea in the middle of the night one night to use the aerial view of a landscape as the starting point for a quilt. This is based on an aerial view of my town, Healdsburg. That's the Russian River you see curving off there. Or, my artistic take on it, anyway.
I've done a few layers of fabrics to work with reverse applique. It's all sewn together, and now I'm satin stitching the edges, which is slow going because of all the tight curvy places. But I'm having fun with this and I'm liking how it's turning out so far.
