Landscape Quilts

I think this is going to be the summer that I am finally going to work on one of the three landscapes that have been rattling around in my head. It started with our first visit to Alaska and seeing the fabulous sunsets and scenery of the Inner Passage. Wanting to do a landscape quilt continued the summer we drove up to Minneapolis-St. Paul. Part of our drive was along the Mississippi on the Wisconsin-Minnesota border - the Mississippi River and the bluffs are just beautiful. The final scene is a recent one: our trip to China, the Yangtze River, and the three Gorges dam. Ok, ok, we didn't see the river and the dam. But friend Kaberi did. In fact, this photo is hers. She and her husband are traveling the world, and they took a trip from Beijing along the Yangtze - something in hindsight we probably should have done. Their blog is well worth reading - the writing and the photos are excellent.

I see no reason why I can't combine the best of these three scapes into something fabulous. We'll see...
