Roadtrip SH8: Lindis Pass
The second mini quilt in my roadtrip series, inspired by our trip down State Highway 8 back in October last year.
This one represents the Lindis Pass, which has a unique grassy, tussocky, hilly landscape filled with power pylons from the hydro dams in the Mackenzie Basin.
I appliqued the landscape, using machine stitching to add textures to represent the different plants and fencelines etc; I hand stitched the long stitches of the pylon - it just needed to be a bit more to the centre seam (but at the time I thought I would be overlocking the edges, however in the end I decided to try a faced backing, which meant I lost a bit more of the side seam than I had planned for).
It's 9"x8" in size.
Linking up to share with Crazy Mom's Friday Night Finish Up! Have a good weekend everyone!
