AZ/Utah Dreamin' is approximately 10 x 18; needle-turned appliqued and hand quilted. Our oldest son took one of his photos of Monument Valley and another of Antelope Canyon and overlayed parts of each using Photoshop. He had the results framed for me as a Christmas Present. This was his gift Christmas 2008.
August 2009 Quilting Arts Magazine had a Frances Holliday Alford (check out her website if you get a chance) tutorial on Gelatin Printing. So I got the things I needed, followed the tutorial, and this is one of the art pieces I did. Fun, fun, fun. The colors aren't exact in photo one, but the close up was taken with my good camera and colors are almost exactly like the quilt. I was born in Michigan and went through high school in Alexandria and Arlington, VA, so here in AZ I really miss seeing the trees wearing their fall colors.
The last two on this posting are in the Baltimore Album style and were done for my husband Sam who is very active in his Masonic Lodge and in Scottish Rite. Both are my own designs, both were needle-turned appliqued, and hand quilted. The second block was made for him in honor of his receiving the Knight Commander Court of Honor designation in 2009.
