A New Design

I just finished a 15" x 60" quilt. Inspiration was memories of hiking in the eastern wilderness areas of the Sierra Nevada mountains many years ago. We were above 10,000 ft and found a fabulous display of wildflowers. I started this piece by cutting up two hand painted silk blouses, out of style yet still great fabrics. Using MistyFuse it was easy to fuse the blouse pieces for part of the background and add a few more silks.
