The Meadow and the Mountain

This is the last of my little series of quilts of the Northwest. It's supposed to be Mt. Hood in the background, but I'm not sure if I captured it correctly. Thus the title, the Meadow and the Mountain. I used Jeans Stitch thread again for the flowers. It really gives a wonderful texture.

That's enough of these little pieces for now. I'm surprised at how much time I spend on each one. Now I want to get back to my abstract work. I think I have some good ideas. Stay tuned.

Looks like Mt. Hood to me! (I live in Portland.) Lovely work.

These look great, Norma. I think your stitching adds wonderful texture to the flowers (great colors too, by the way) and the peaks of the mountain. A sure sale!

Looks great Mom! And it does look like Mt Hood!

Norma,
I grew up in the shadow of Mt. Hood, and camped many years at Carter Lake.They are just as I remember them, thanks for the trip back, over 50 years ago.
I now live in the shadow of Mt. Adams.

A very nice composition, with a good balance of color. I love the flowers in the forefront - color and texture.

I love what you have done with these Norma. Each one has gotten better, but I must say I like the latest one the best.
