I have always been fascinated by the way people can balance rocks. It doesn’t seem possible, but they have the patience to make it happen and I love seeing them. One day I was hiking on a trail at Ghost Ranch which is near Abiquiu, New Mexico (Georgia O’Keefe’s territory) and came upon some rocks that were balanced on each other. I took pictures of them and thought I would use that for my “Rock” quilt. As I was paging through the other photos I found this one of the most spectacular balanced rocks that no man can make. If you ever get to go to Ghost Ranch, hike the trail to Chimney Rock, this is what you will see.
Here is a closeup that gives the truer color of the piece and the thread work that I did on it. The sky fabric is a piece that I hand dyed.
