I Want to Keep These!




I am really pleased with the way these look completed.  If you read my earlier posts, I taught myself how to design and create this triptych.  It helped to find these beautiful fabrics in a local quilt shop, and the blog posts that I read with tips.  These are 48" tall, and the center is 37.5" wide, and the narrower outside panels are 19.5" wide. 

They depict the desert hills and wind turbines near Mojave, CA where my husband works.  They are on their way to his office right now. 

I stitched black fabric all the way around, similar to a binding, and then pulled the black around the wooden frame that my husband made, and then finally taped them on with duct tape. 

Do you know of an appraiser who specializes in landscapes?  Would I just contact a quilt appraiser?  I may need to get these appraised before I start my second set.

They are amazing! I can see why you'd like to keep them! A local quilt guild or Art gallery might have information about appraising.

They are wonderful! I have passed by those windmills many times. Your interpretation is perfect! An insurance broker might know of an appraiser.

Yes, I've definitely seen those too, having grown up in CA. WOW, what a work of art!

Amazing!!!! They look so life like and real!!! I saw my first turbines in Aug in Ohio on our way home from vacation. They are HUGE! Yours look amazing.

I have a photograph of the CA windmills and this quilt trio brought me back to my last trip through the area where I saw them. Wonderful work of art. Now I'm feeling a bit lonesome for Cali!

Wow... your wind turbine triptych is stunning! I'm sure your DH is thrilled with them!

PS - I'd want to keep them at home too!

:)

These are just gorgeous! Having just seen lots of wind turbines in Denmark and Germany I can honestly say that you have completely captured the beauty of them.

I wouldn't be surprised if you get some commissions!
