'Come walk with me'

This landscape tapestry was created by artist Martha Cole in 1978,
 and features a scene near Disley, Sask. (Shauna Powers/CBC)

Saskatchewan fibre artist Martha Cole uses a quilting technique to create large pieces of textile art that look like paintings. One of her pieces features a grain elevator. Another highlights the prairie sky. It's massive in size at four-feet by eight-feet, and features only the tiniest slivers of ground before the sky takes over.

Artist Martha Cole created this piece in 2005 from cotton, fabric paint,
assorted threads and batting. (Shauna Powers/CBC)
Two of Cole's shows, called 70/70 Vision, continue at the Mata Gallery in Regina throughout the summer.
