She Shares Her Splendor With The Sea

She Shares Her Splendor With The Sea

I wanted to make a quilt about sunsets over water for a long time, but waited until I figured out a technique that would approach the delicacy of color and texture that my eyes could see. Working with layered sheer fabrics finally provided that kind of detailing. While folding the tucks for the ripples and stitching the highlights, I played my tape of ocean waves on the beach. It was a great little vacation, and very inexpensive.
