Description: For my job last summer, I routinely drove through acres of grass seed fields.
I was fascinated by the sweetly changing yellow of the field against the brilliant blue of the sky. When the sun would hit the fields in the afternoon, they would glitter like gold. It took my breath away every time.
After the grass seed was cut, it was left in rows. I was inspired by the striped effect this made. When I made my quilt, I chose to echo those stripes, as well as incorporating the color variations of the field and clouds.
