Hoodoos is a technique I've played with for years, where I piece tiny strip to tiny strip and make long sections. I haven't made anything with them yet. Then when I saw his highways painting, this came to me.
I love it so much I plan to make a larger one. I had a lot of fun playing with hand dye scraps, and playing around with color relationships.
The amazing thing to me was that I grew to absolutely love the organic ochre/red strip. Not colors I use often if ever. It's true, all colors have beauty. The ochre looks especially pretty next to the blues.

I toyed with the idea of another poodle, and my DH suggested the "line drawing" be a poodle but I didn't feel like it.
I'm a moody little artist.
I placed the beaded cording on the finished quilt, and held it in place gingerly while stitching over it with free motion. If it shifted a bit, well, it's a woman! What woman doesn't shift a bit in her life? I lovelovelove his letters in squares, so I did free motion zig-zag letters spelling JOY and surrounded with my fave beads.
Who doesn't need a little more Joy in their lives?? I do, ( raising hands and waving them around)
Thanks for looking
