Something I'm really enjoying about this quilt as it unfolds is the color. All of the colors that I see in his photos are coming out of the quilt, with perhaps even more vividness. Look at the green and blue!! Chuck saw quite a few moose on his trip through Alaska. This beauty is actually cut from a fabric that feature moose panels! I just used steam a seam to fuse it.
At the northernmost point in his trip, Chuck got to try out some gold panning. He'd learned the basic techniques in the Black Hills, SD, and had the equipment he needed. He actually did find a few small pieces of gold, and even at the current price, they represented about .25 an hour! LOL!
Here is a sneak peak at the rushing stream, complete with leaping salmon. The stream is definitely mixed media!
