Mt. Rainier (in situ) 16"x64"
Yes, that's a trash can on the far right to give this display a sense of scale. My son and his wife loved the quilt enough to hang it in their bedroom, which is in the attic. Hence the sloping ceiling. Anyone taller than 4 feet must stoop over for close inspection. (That's one way to hide some wayward stitches.)
"Better living through chemistry" has helped my son regain enough of his health to resume care of his darling- now 1 year old- daughter, other household obligations, and even enjoy skiing the slopes of the Cascades. Wrenching as it was to leave them, my husband and I felt it was time to go home to California. He is eager to work on the many many images he photographed during our sojourn up north, and I have raw emotions to push under the needle.
