The author talks about her art quilt called Summer Jazz. According to the author, Western landscapes have made her realize the beauty of vast open space and prompting her to use color sparingly and to work with simple shades. She started her work with no preconceived, regulated shapes. She decided to create her own palette of dye painted fabrics because of its depth and textures, which are created by coloration or patterning based on what is seen in the natural environment. The landscape colors of summer, such as the neutral hues of the arid land and the colors glimpsed in wildflowers, inspired her to create Summer Jazz.
