Design Concept

In February of 2020, we visited Torres del Paine National Park in Southern Chile. On one of our hikes, we found a large heard of Guanacos, who did not seem to mind if we walked among them and took their pictures. We also noticed that each heard had a sentry posted on top of a nearby hill to warn the group when a puma was in the area. This photo reminded me of one of the sentries.

To create the design, I combined elements from two different photos with digital painting. One photo was of the guanaco, and the other was of the Andes mountain range, shrouded in clouds. The background was digitally painted, and the edges were faded to white. The finished design was printed by Spoonflower in two pieces and appliqued together to form the complete image.  The matching binding strips were printed at the same time.

The image of the guanaco is very heavily quilted with dozens of different colors of thread and the sky and outer edges are quilted in a meandering, and spiraling pattern.
