This art quilt is called "Seagulls in Church"

Photo and quilt by Anne Daughtry (spouse)

At the Oregon coast, in the little town of Yachats (Ya-hots), we rounded a corner in a city park on a day with heavy rain, high winds and rough seas. A group of seagulls was sheltering in the lee of some rocks. A couple of them stood outside, appearing, perhaps, to address them. We took a photo, and now, since there is to be a juried art quilt show at the art center there, Anne did this one modeled on the photo. We will take it over there sometime next month to enter the contest. It is about 16" x 18".

That is a special piece of art. Nicely done, Anne. It brings back memories of Yachats. I wonder if that super nice hippie joint cafe is still there by the post office?

I am not sure. There is one on the east side of the highway that fits that description.

I like the photo so interesting and meaningful. This kind is one in a million photo, having the sea gulls saved themselves from the angry waves.

Yes, the way she converted the photo into an all fabric quilt is amazing to me.
