My first surface design quilt

Remember the work I did at Anne Munoz's and Lisa Chin's class at Quilt Fest in St. George? Here it is:


And here it is, quilted. I love the way it turned out! I call it "We All Shine" because that is how I feel about all of us - we have different talents, shine for different reasons, but are all brilliant in our own right!

I quilted it with metallic thread around and inside each sun and dots, then used Sulky variegated thread to do the [tiny] stippling on the background. Before I applied the binding, I sewed a golden trim all around.





So fun! What have you been up to lately?

  7. Great quilting! I love the sun, it reminds me a lot of the sun motif repeated everywhere in the movie Tangled (I have a preschool daughter, can you tell I've seen it a few times!) That must have taken lots of thread and lots of time! Great result.

  10. I found your blog on the linking party at Sew Many Ways and I am really enjoying it. Your sun quilt is beautiful as are your other quilts. I have never tried stamping or painting my own fabrics other than footprints of my daughters. It looks like fun! :)
