Autumn Splendor

Here is a delightful landscape quilt we admired at the 2022 Quilt Fiesta (Tucson, Arizona). This piece captures the splendor of golden aspen trees at this time of year. A wood cabin is nestled among the trees in the middle left of the quilt, facing a grassy meadow.

Autumn Splendor by Janet Pugh

We enjoyed this original art quilt by Janet Pugh.  It was inspired by golden aspen trees, which draw thousands of tourists to Colorado each autumn. The dimensional leaves in the foreground were very well done. Janet says, "Capturing the colors against a woven sky with painted aspen bark, dimensional leaves and grassy meadow is my attempt to create the view in fiber." Her thread painting can be seen in the closeup photo below.

The quilt was designed, made and quilted by Janet herself. She accurately depicts the texture of the aspen bark. The batik fabrics, in hues of green and brown, reflect the colors and textures of the forest floor.
