In 2005 while visiting Arizona (a visually stunning state) we went on a photography excursion to Antelope Canyon. Everywhere you looked there were gorgeous views.  This quilt was inspired by one of the many photos I took that day.  I did add a little something to the design though, or rather someone  lol!  The pointing figure (complete with eyeglasses) represents me (back in the days when I could walk without canes) wearing a favorite lavender blouse providing both a spot of complementary color and a point of reference regarding the scale of the beautiful red, orange & yellow towering rock formations.
Appliqué center was created in Patchdraw and includes thread lines to provide some definition to the twisting canyon walls.
