A few months ago I completed a landscape quilt that had a town, farm and other human developments on the land, and it had a cross-section that showed the subsurface below the land. This fiber art piece was called "Transects in Time", and it was made for someone who works for the Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB) of California. This is a state agency charged with protecting the waters of the State of California. A photo of the art quilt was put in the State RWQCB newsletter. I was contacted by another person who works for the RWQCB and commissioned to make a landscape quilt also showing a cross-section of the subsurface. This is the finished quilt.
The area depicted is the Palm/Indian Canyon near Palm Desert. I will be giving doing some more posts showing the making of this piece in the next few weeks. I was happy with is and so is the owner. :-)
