Sally's house quilt

There have been some comments on the MQA list about landscape quilts made from photographs, and it has motivated me to post one of my own made recently. I had a grant through the MS Arts Commission to work with an apprentice and we decided on quilts made from photos we took. Mine is from a picture of my friend Sally's house in New Orleans. The finished quilt and the reference photo:
And this is a commission I did a month or so ago from a Wyatt Waters watercolor (with written permission!) and the original painting.

Rhonda, I'm glad I got to see the house quilt in person at the MQA Gathering in June. Nice work on interpreting the Wyatt Waters watercolor, too!
