The flow of water through the forest and ferns in this coastal California landscape by Sandy Hart brings the viewer's attention up and around the quilt. A subdued digitally-rendered rainbow border embellished with cross-hatched embroidery continues the visual flow around the outer edge. Sandy took fourteen different photos at the Asilomar Conference Grounds near Monterey. Using Photoshop, she juxtaposed two vertical collages joined with narrow sashing. These were printed on textured silk by Color Textiles, then quilted with variety of decorative threads.
