Janet's busy photo included LOTS of these wonderful flowers. She wisely edited them down so she could properly show off just a few.
Yellowstone Grand Canyon by Sharon Mirzai
Sharon did a great job capturing the depth and scale of her subject.
Out the Back Window by Donna Faulconer
Donna combined several photos to achieve her composition. She used several layers of black tulle to darken the water. The edges of the layers were offset to create a shaded transition.
Morning in the Forest
by Betty J. Van Dellen
Betty worked from her original photo, shot in a rain
forest. She used tulle to help capture the rays of
light streaming through the mist.
Dune Sunflowers by Faith Pfalz
Faith's background is an excellent example of working loosely. Although her inspiration photo showed gray speckled rocks, she copied only the colors and used straight lines to complement the curves of the flowers.
by Georgann McHugh
Georgann took her inspiration from a variety of online sources, selecting her favorite elements to go into this one quilt. Her brightly patterned fish fabrics add lots of interest.
Pat's combination of happy yellow flowers and purple undergrowth was inspired by two different photos. She combined and edited elements to create a striking composition.
A Gardener's Delight, by Barb Gardner
Barb's inspiration photos had such an abundance of flowers it was hard to choose a direction. But, she edited fiercely to come up with a wonderful composition.
by Doris Hulse
Doris' inspiration photo showed an entire forest, but she focused on her favorite area and played it up
with a loose interpretation and plenty of high contrast.
Poppies, by Barbara Fyffe
Barbara edited like a pro! She omitted many trivial details and enlarged the flowers to bring attention to them.
Dub Honey's Butterfly
This was June's first art quilt but it sure doesn't show! The fine details really bring her butterfly to life.
The Atrium at Ochsner's, by Martha Ginn
Martha did an excellent job using fabric to her advantage.
Check out that foliage!
