Finally, Some Fiber

The title of this blog is Fiber and Photographs.
Until this moment, it has only been my photos and
Photoshop work. No more, she says...



This is my 2007 Journal Quilt entry,
Land Forms #1, which is hanging at
the Houston quilt show. A description
follows.

Land Forms #1
The inspiration for this piece came while
looking out the window of an airplane. The
patterns and colors evident in farm land
across America are simply awesome. I sketched
for awhile and then later, put fabric to form.

There is an old tree on my in-laws farmland
that has been dead for many years. It stands
as though a sentinel, guarding the property
and family. I have taken many pictures and
include it here as a screen print, guarding
this farm land as well.

I really enjoyed your piece! I love looking at the landscape through the window of a plane. I think you covered the majesty of the land quite expertly.
Thanks for sharing

Oh, I really like that quilt. Looking down from a plane really does give a new perspective on life.

I like this a lot! The tree is particularly wonderful. Lovely lines.

Great Perspective. It is so different from above, we can see it as it really is and I think you have portrayed that well.

I, too, have thought the landscape from a plane would make a wonderful quilt. I love the personal touch of the tree.
