New Paths to Follow

Time to Say Good-By 

                (Con Ti Partiro)

This was my second entry in the annual
 Pacific Piece Maker Quilt Guild held in April 2014 in the Arts Center, Gualala, CA.

A little bit bitter sweet as this will most likely be my last entry in our guild's annual challenge. For me it was a way to say good by as I get ready to start a new chapter in my life in the beautiful North West. I created this quilt from a photo my husband took when we were visiting in Italy. I have always loved landscapes and this was like painting with strips of fabric.

The piece is 28" by 36". All cotton fabrics used and if you look closely you can see the subtle beading. I used both the front and back of some of the fabrics. I like the little path that winds trough the hillside village as it reminds me of the paths we take in life. Everyday is an adventure and who knows what surprises will be around the corner?
