My own Olympic Steps wall hanging
purrfect-lady Send a Message
Gig Harbor, WA

While at the Houston quiltfest four or five years ago I admired a quilt entitled “Olympic steps“. It’s inspiration was taken from the Hoh Rain Forest on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state. A few years later I was hiking in the rain forest and happened upon the very steps that were in the quilt. I was elated! I took several pictures and started collecting fabrics to make my own quilt. It took another three years to wrap my head around it before I actually started cutting fabric. This is what I have been working on this week. It measures about 21“ x 31“ and is now hanging in my family room

Oh Mary, I think you may have surpassed yourself with this awesome hanging!! Even the perspective of making the steps smaller as they circle around is perfect. Great Job!!!

Glad you found inspiration in Houston!!! Your wall hanging is beautiful. I couldn't do anything like that as I'm not an artist. I think you have to be an artist to be able to do something like that.
