What materials did you use? Hand dyed most of the fabrics especially for this project. Also used some of my mams clothing.

Beautiful! Great piece. Just a comment.....If you had wanted to create luminosity in your sky, then you would need to use a yellow that was clearer in color than the one you used----a fabric with little or no gray in its makeup. The yellow fabric that you used has a lot of gray in its makeup, so the effect is gentle in effect, which is lovely. However it has too much gray in it to be luminous in this scene. However you may have not wanted luminosity in this scene. The way you have it is very beautiful. I especially love the sky with its subtle differences in color. Great job!

Thank you Joen. There is so much to consider putting a quilt together. I am really enjoying the challenges. I would of loved to be able to paint but I was never any good at it. Now I feel I can paint with fabric. I have found your class so inspiring Joen. Thank you!

Your quilt is very beautiful. Love your colors. What pattern did you use for this quilt? I love the look and great idea as a memory quilt. I am trying to do a wall hanging with a sea and sand effect. This looks very much like what I have in mind.

Thank you! I didn't have a pattern, I just made it up. I started with 8 inch or so wide strips and cut them randomly at different angles.

I was inspired by the quilts of Ann Brauer. She has a web site and shows her technique. It may be helpful to you. Good luck with your quilt
