Hedgehog CactusSeptember 21, 2007
DH and I lived in Scottsdale, AZ way back in the 80’s. We would go hiking in the foothills and took many, many photos of all the beautiful vegetation in the Sonora desert. One of my favorite plants that we would photograph was the hedgehog cactus. I used it as inspiration for this quilt which I use as a table runner.
You can’t see the cactus? Hm-m, I can’t either. Here is a photo of a hedgehog cactus.
I’ve learned a lot about color and value since then and I think that I also understand more about composition and design. I have more of a variety of fabrics to choose from so I think I could do a much better job today with this exercise.
I also noticed that some of the quilting threads have broken and the stitches are coming out. So I am glad that I’ve learned to use better quality materials since then too!!
It would be interesting to revisit this project and make another to show the changes in my abilities.
