Altitudinal Ecosystem, August 2015

Page Content: 

Altitudinal Ecosystem is a design I created while participating in Quilt Design a Day. Anne Sullivan (@playcrafts) provided the inspiration photo of lakes and snow-capped, tree-covered mountains in November 2014. I loved the inspiration as it reminded me of my ecology studies, the mountain highlighting the diversity of species and how they change as altitude increases. This is an Altitudinal Ecosystem..
