Setting Sun

Quilt Documentation # 145

This is a little piece I made in 2012.

Setting Sun

I started by painting cotton fabric in gold, brown and white acrylics. When dry, I applied curved pieces that were cut from several types of fabrics – organza, tulle, scrim and cheesecloth.


The whole piece was then covered with fine tulle and free-motioned quilted.  More paint was added to the bottom vegetation.


The fabric was then wrapped and stapled over a 12” x 12” canvas .

Setting Sun was hung in our recent show “A Journey in Thread”.

And see the red dot, it sold!

Happy Quilting,
