The Cherrywood Challenge: The Lion King

My piece Twilight for The Lion King Challenge has been juried into the Challenge!
It will be one of the 120 quilts in the traveling collection.



The Lion King Cherrywood Challenge 2016 is getting ready to hit the road to travel for over a year.

The amazing response to the challenge (over 300 entries) was juried down to a fabulous collection of 120 traveling quilts. These quilts were selected from a pool of Finalists.
All 138 Finalists appear in this beautiful keepsake photo book, including the artist's statements






To add a bit of colour I used colour pencils.

Inspired by the fabrics I decided to depict the Lion King in the desert. The sun is going down. The lion is sleepy. The vultures are waiting..... The feeling of suspense in the air.
