After the Rains

We are living in waterfall-land. Since the earth here is mostly rock and clay, when it rains it all has to go somewhere. Gravity being what it is, that is downhill. It has been raining heavily for days and that makes more waterfalls, even little ones appear everywhere, especially along the road down the mountain. This is the one we see most often as a steady trickle, but it was unbelievably huge yesterday. There is a pull off spot, so we don’t stop mid-road to view this beauty.

I forgot to post the finished quilt that I showed in progress yesterday. I am doing a series called ROYGBIV after the colors in the rainbow. This is #1.

  2. Love how the turquoise square pops against the magenta! SO is each quilt going to have a different main color? And then when you line them up in ROYGBIV order it'll emphasize the ROYGBIVness of it all?

    I still struggle with making lots of color work together, 2 of the 3 pieces i made last weekend are good examples of that!

  4. I love the way the purple changes to red and orange at the bottom. Of course, I love orange anyway!

  5. Amazing waterfall! Thank you for sharing. You are inspiring me to add some handwork to my quilts again.

  6. I always wonder what goes on in your head when you compose. In some of your work, I tend to see small elements encased in frames that increase in size as I move away from the center of the piece. It's quite interesting. Whatever you think (or do unconsciously? as you do this, it totally works for me. :-)

  7. Oooo, how Lush and Marvelous! I love the rainbow idea, and it would be perfection in my living room... a nice row of something like this with some nice lighting. I might have to snatch that idea Ms Melody!
