The roads are still somewhat iffy around here, especially early mornings and later in the day when temperatures drop and the snow melt turns to ice. So...what's a gal to do.....be smart, be safe, stay in studio and finish the last quilt of 2018!After much indecision over the most artful direction to showcase my digital prints of interesting subjects found as I hiked and drove around our rural mountain areas in Haywood County, NC. I used a variety of green batiks to surround each print. Once positioned on my design wall, I found the white background really helped to highlight the images.
Using a cotton print that appears to be "peeling paint"....I set about piecing this puzzle arrangement together. It took way more time than it should....but that's me....patchwork and math can befuddle me. But I'm happy I took the time to make it work.

Artist's photos printed on cotton, machine stitched and heavily quilted.
I LOVE this photo.....this car was located about a 10 minute walk from our house on Balk Creek Road in Upper Crabtree, NC. Obviously it had been there for years. About 3 years ago someone bought the property and removed, YES...removed it. Too bad.....
