A Quilt of Seasons

These last three Nature Gathered themes have really had me on the ropes.... pondering and pondering, with more pondering on how to best represent my artistic message.

Looking for a unique view on the Seasons concept, and searching for a way to incorporate patterning brought about thoughts of my favorite time of the year, Fall. Snuggling under a well loved, well worn quilt to keep the chill in the air from enveloping me was the inspiration for this background. Initially, I had planned to incorporate a nature element into all twelve quilt blocks, but quickly abandon this thought, deciding to go with two larger, distinct, nature elements that would hint at contrasting differences in flora and fauna within the year.
