Kauai Road…

Having the line drawing of the palm trees and telephone poles helps a lot. All through this process, I could see how they would fill up the foreground. The sky, mountains, and bushes on the sides of the road are really background.

Once the mountains were in place, I went back to the road and began cutting fabric for the bushes and trees, but it was slow going. I then turned my attention to the sky, which is mostly cloudy. (It is, in fact, very often cloudy in this spot on Kauai.)

Finding the right fabrics for the sky was hard!!!—so I went back to the greenery :-).

Kauai Road 6

There is a car in my photo, but it’s isn’t red. It needs to be red!


After getting a lot of the foreground trees and poles cut, I went back to the sky. It was still hard, but I stuck with it. I did have to go buy some fat quarters which was a surprise. It’s getting closer to being ready to take off the wall!

  2. Love it! I’ve wanted to do something like this for a long time. I live in the dest and LOVE the colors here. One of these days…..


  3. Just great! The road is as brilliant as the colorful areas–gives a person that relaxed flat well worn path feeling when embarking. I like the pale fossil ferns for fooling around with sky. Your sky fabrics are looking good!
