I love travelling with my Hubs (a flea market picker) on the backroads of the countryside. We come across a lot of interesting sights and I am always asking him to stop for me to get a photo. I definitely had to stop for this Covered Bridge in Tannehill Valley, Alabama.
This is the modern, simplistic rendition of the above covered bridge picture.
Since I wanted to make an abstraction from this I started cutting it up into small squares that I sewed back together.
Now I have Abstraction # 3 and I love it. The grid quilting gives it dimension.
This piece was inspired by the right side of the Covered Bridge where the support joins the roof line. Abstraction #2.
A more realistic abstract was done using hand dyed fabrics from my stash. Abstraction #1.
A detail of the quilting done on Bernina 640E machine. I love straight lines.
