Blind Bay Landscape

Living on Shuswap Lake since 2004, I never tire of the view from our deck. The above wall hanging depicts the scene that I look at every day -- the trees between our house and the lake, the gorgeous lake itself, and the mountains on the north shore. This quilt was made using fabrics that I hand-painted as well as a couple of commercial fabrics that have been manipulated by washes of colour and the use of watercolour pencils. It was constructed using curved piecing for the background features and raw-edge applique for the trees; it was machine quilted. Created in 2007. . . Click on the image to see more detail.
