This is 1 of 4 art quilts as pillows I created for a geologist.
He told me he me he makes an annual spiritual pilgrimage to Monument Valley, Utah and asked if I could make pillows using his photos as inspiration.
It’s funny—I had a large piece of hand-dyed orange-ish fabric that sat in my fabric cupboard for years. I couldn’t remember where I got the piece (or why!) but I finally had the perfect use for it. It gave me a great start for each monolith.
I also tried very hard to capture important details about each one—-the shadows, highlights and textures.
My customer was very pleased with his pillows!
