I'm really excited because my quilt, "Nature Redesigns Highway One," won second place in the quilting division at Art In The Redwoods this month. Happy hardly begins to describe my feelings!
I wasn't there at the opening and the judging, but I'm told there were a lot of comments from gallery visitors. Almost everyone recognized this patch of the highway, which lies just north of our community of Gualala, California.
I blogged about this last year when I put the quilted wall hanging into our guild's challenge show. Here is the original photo from which I designed the pattern.
And here are a few close-ups of the quilt.

before fusing it to create the wrinkles.

Bernina felting attachment.

The Art In The Redwoods exhibit will be up till September 1st at the Gualala Arts Center, if you can make it there.
