Sunset Beach

This little quilt is 30x35" and was made by my glue basting method. It includes hand-dyed fabrics as well as commercial fabrics. I machine appliqued the background pieces - the sky, sea and sand - and hand appliqued the palm tree and leaves. Machine embroidery was used in the palm fronds. I have yet to bind it.

The batting is Hobbs 80/20. I used a gold metalic thread by Signature for the rays in the sunset after marking the lines with a water soluble pen. The pen came out easily by spritzing the fabric with water.

The quilting in the remaining parts of the quilt is done with 100% cotton thread by Signature in various colors. All quilting was done on the longarm machine.
