This quilt began on a hot summer Montana afternoon on my back patio with white fabric and colorful dyes! Aqua blue, turquoise, and warm golden yellows. The fabric is dried and the dyes are heat set.

This whole-cloth piece is entirely free motion quilted in an original one-of-a-kind design. Angelina fibers, sparkling and rich colored textures in metallic threads, yarns, couching, and bobbin play add shimmery soft lines that reflects my personal interpretation of a clear, bright, summer day in the sun -- by the pool, at the lake, or lounging at a picnic!

This piece showcases three sides with curved, hand-cut binding edges, all hand-stitched using a fabric that highlights the hand-dyed fabric and threads. It will also allow versatility in hanging, either horizontally or vertically. Both are very attractive to the shimmery and bright qualities of all the beautiful moving lines of threads and quilting motifs. It will also look great on a table as a beautiful piece of art.

Size, including the binding edges: 15" wide by 28.25" long at it's widest and longest points.
