This is Eileen’s Island Sunrise quilt which is another finish from the Judy Niemeyer workshop our guild held in the fall. Eileen really liked how I quilted Alex’s a few weeks ago so I took a lot of the quilting elements from that one and change a few details. I did a feather design in the outer border but did three different shapes….a plume, a leaf and a swirl. I did loops in the inner border and a windy swirl in the background of the arcs. Repeated the same design in the spike shapes as in Alex’s quilt.
I used #439 Amethyst So Fine thread on top and it blended so well into all the bright colors. For the backing I used #648 Dark Brown Bottom Line thread and Dream Blend is the batting.
I dyed the backing a soft brown, it almost as a suede look to it!
