The Iron Mountain Road
This art quilt is a recreation of a photo from our trip to the Black Hills of South Dakota. We took the Iron Mountain Road approach to Mt. Rushmore. I had seen old postcards depicting this route and was pleasantly surprised when we ended up on this road by chance.
I scanned a print from one of those old postcards to recreate Mt. Rushmore in the distance. The pine tree on the right is my first attempt at thread painting. If you plan to visit this area make time to take the Iron Mountain Road and the Needles Highway.
My name is Chris Daly. I am a quilter and stained glass artist that loves bold colors. Sewing and needle arts have always been a part of my life. I have been dyeing garments for 20 years. I started dyeing quilting fabrics 5 years ago when I had a hard time finding the colors I wanted for my projects. I live in rural Wisconsin with my husband and occasionally my college age son.
