CHRISTINE EARHART

The Art of Christine Earhart

THE ARROYO

.

The Arroyo in Pasadena has a stream (once a river) at the base with hills covered in bushes, pine and oak trees with lots of rocks.  Some of these rocks have been gathered and built into walls and walkways leading up to the street above.  In the distance are the San Gabriel Mountains which have snow in the winter.  In making this quilt I painted cotton fabric and cheese cloth for the river, landscaping jute on the hills, yarns in several places, jute string along the  walk way, painted dryer sheets for trees, raw edge appliqué for the rocks, hand quilting as well as machine quilting.
