A Sunset Quilt : :

Sunset Quilt -- Road

Last week I received my Sunset Quilt top back and SO beautifully quilted by Sew Shabby Quilting! I finished the binding, using Tule's Native Fringe in Celeste late Sunday night, and on Monday we drove out to Lyman Lake to take our photos!

Sunset Quilt -- Sparkle

It's backed in my most favorite Tule print, Flora's Oasis in Rosa, with a little help from one of my most favorite LillyBelle prints by Bari J., Henna Stripe in Grey!

This quilt is for my adorable niece & Goddaughter Sylvia. She lives in Hawaii, so I wanted to make her something sunny, pretty, and happy. Leah Duncan's Tule collection for Art Gallery Fabrics worked perfectly for my pattern!

It was such a beautiful day for picture taking!

Since my pattern is so subtle, we decided to try something fun with the quilting, and I am in love with what Melissa did! We make a great team, her & I!

She made each little rectangle, solid, print, & corner of my quilt beautiful -- thank you Melissa for sharing your talent with me!

  6. A beautiful quilt, Maureen! The shot on the dock reminds me of my sunbathing days at the lake when I was a teenager, LONG, long ago!

  7. Beautiful, as always. I know you call it a sunset quilt, and I can totally see that, but it also reminds me of the ocean at sunset, and the variations are the different colors cast by the setting sun on the ocean. Perfect for Hawaii!

  16. Oh I love all these colours! And is it wrong that I burst out laughing when I tried to figure out how long I would have to drive for to find an empty road in a picturesque location like that? (the answer is a good 3-4 hours!)
