Grand Canyon Sunrise 26"w x 39" h


The June 2013 issue of Sunset Magazine featured a photo by Thomas J. Story of sunrise over the Grand Canyon.  Using the stitch and flip method, I sewed one inch strips of fabric onto backing and batting, so it was really a quilt-as-you-go project.  I am quite pleased with the impressionistic results.
Now I'm keeping my eyes open for more scenes with colors that sing.

  2. This is yummy! I'm imagining that you did a layout of the strips and then just zipped through this. Nice job.

  4. Hello Sara - I love your sunset themed quilt. Could I please use the image to show the City and Guilds students that I teach as it is a wonderful example of piecing from a theme. I will make sure that you are full attributed as the maker and the students will not be copying it.
