Kaylene Maalste – Roads – On Way to Burra
My quilt was inspired by a trip taken during September that took us through some beautiful farming areas, some paddocks were in full bloom with canola, others were bright purple from a weed known as “Salvation Jane” (Echium plantagineum), then there was the wheat paddocks and some that had been ploughed. The style of my quilt was influenced by Ton Schulten. I used hand dyed and commercial cottons and relied on hand embroidery to accent the paddocks.

I didn’t know you lived on the Canadian Prairie, Kaylene… (grin). Delightful piece — and to think it connects us 1/2-way around the globe. Thank you!
Thank you and yes landscapes can be very similar no matter where. Cheers
You were thinking along the same lines as I was Kaylene, and I love the way you have interpreted the landscape into regular forms
Very effective Kaylene, I love the use of the stitching to add texture to the landscape.
I love how you have used embroidery to add texture.
