I guess I really was inspired — I’ve spent the last few days working feverishly on a commission for a former co-worker and just finished it this afternoon. — By the way, when I say “days”, you should read day and night. When I get going on something that I feel really inspired by, I just can’t stop. — Larry, my coworker, brought this photo into work several months back and asked me if I could recreate it in fabric. I was completely drawn in by the beautiful colors and the challenge of recreating the composition of foreground, middleground and background. Then work got busy and I forgot all about it.
A few weeks ago I found his card in my wallet and remembered the hot air balloon picture. I contacted him and he was all for me attempting this wall quilt. After the American Craft Council Show, the time seemed perfect. So here it is, the finished piece. What do you think? 🙂
