This is a small, 16" square, quilted wall hanging, which depicts a typical scene around my home in eastern Tennessee.  Some of the tobacco is still in the field, waiting to be harvested; some hangs in the barn, which you can see in the distance on the hill along with the little house.  Trees have turned in the higher elevations.  I've included a "3-D" picture of a boulder such as you would find around here, as well as a grasses.   I used texture magic to make the boulder, which makes it stand out more than just quilting it would have.

Although I love to make traditional pieced quilts, making art quilts is my favorite technique.   I like to just start putting an art quilt together to see where it will go.  I used the book, "Accidental Landscapes," by Karen Eckmeier, as the inspiration for this quilt.
