Landscapes

I live pretty much outdoors. Our boat certainly has an indoors and we sleep indoors and hide from the elements indoors, but the outdoors is right there, inches away. It's very different from the insulating feeling one gets living in a house.

Landscapes and seascapes are my visual world. I don't often make representational images in my tiny quilts, but I couldn't resist making an attempt at rendering a shoreline that we saw coming up the ICW (the Intracoastal Waterway) this Spring somewhere in NC.


                             "ICW 2013 NC", 10" x 16", hand appliqu├ęd and quilted.

Here's the actual landscape that inspired it.
