Customer Gems - Susan Kelly
This is an abstract rendition of a close up of the face of El Capitan in Yosemite, taken from the valley floor. On June 3rd, 2017, Alex Honnold completed the first free solo climb of El Capitan, without protective equipment. I was compelled to make this small piece. The piece measures 12" x 18", and was done using the "broken color" technique taught by Denise Oyama Miller. Vertical lines were quilted with walking foot in various colors to emphasize the verticality of that incredible rock face.
Susan used pieces from The Pebbles and Rocks Stash Pack in her piece.
If you have made anything with my hand dyed fabric I hope you will consider sharing it in the Customer Gallery. In appreciation you will receive a 20% shop coupon that's good for 3 months!

Prefect fabric to use for this original design with all the sharp angles in the rocks. I believe it screams the harshness of Canyon rock wall. Thank you for posting this.
