Looking down on it all
Finished. I am working my way through January as if I were actually getting paid. Ha! This is my second "Bird's Eye View" piece finished this month. They will be submitted next month. The first was Mt. Hood from the Air which has taken its place in my blog banner above. It was not intended for the blog, but when I was contemplating changing the look, it suddenly seemed perfect. For one thing I think it is the only quilt I have ever made that is that horizontal in orientation. Then, there is the fact that Mt. Hood is sort of the definitive landmark here where I live. When we can see Mt. Hood, we know it is a good day.
Now, this second piece, by contrast is not a real place. It exists only in my imagination, but it is an impression of scenes I have seen from the air. It needs a name. If you have any great ideas leave me a comment. I do love the greens and there are some really beautiful color changes when you look at it closeup.
