Cactus Wallhanging

Dotty Smalley, member of Roadrunner Quilters of Yuma, Arizona completed this wallhanging using a painted fabric piece of Eileen Gidman's.

I love to adobe wall window peekthrough to the desert scene. The repeat of the Ocotilla's from the background of the painted piece to the three appliqued branches is a fantastic design element.

Dotty will be entering this wall hanging in the Arizona State show. this year.

Carola, the owner or Carola's Quilt Shop ( in Gibson's, B.C., Canada completed this wall hanging, using one of Eileen Gidman's painted fabric pieces.

The asymmetrical design is awesome.
