Adirondacks and Spain united in Love

My mother was commissioned to do this collage quilt for a friend of hers who's daughter has moved to the Basque region of Spain and getting married. She wanted to show the Adirondack mountain area where she is from and the Basque region both in one quilt. 

The photos are not that great but hopefully you can see the two people (photos of the real people on fabric)
walking thru the fields with sheep and goats in the foreground. She has put a tree with foliage that she fussy cut in the foreground giving shade to the wedding table at the bottom.

The wedding couple is walking hand in hand down to the sea (Basque region) with the mountains in the background (Adirondacks). She used real shells tacked down on the beach.

I think she did a great job, coming up with this idea just from her imagination and pulled it off beautifully.
Well done Mom!
