This quilt is my biggest effort (so far) in my "Celebration of Rain" series. With all that precious rain finally falling from the sky, I was inspired to track its journey from puddle to Pacific. Each panel is a depiction of a place I love: a puddle on the ranch road at my family's coastal farm, a marsh on the east side of the Cascade range in Oregon, pristine Crater Lake, the Eel River as it flows through a remote part of Mendocino County, and finally the Pacific Ocean on the Mendocino Coast.
