BOW VALLEY IN AUTUMN- 2009- FINISHED TOP
I have shown you the thread painted tree and bear - and here is the finished top, ready for quilting. I have it already for quilting . The foreground on this one didn't come easily - I haven't worked on a large wall hanging for some time. The quilt will finish at
30.5" wide by 44" tall. It will take me awhile to quilt it as the quilting is very important and I want this one to really really look good. Click on the picture to see the hand dye up close as well as other parts of the quilt.
The sky is one of my hand dyes and works very well.
The mountains are from a grey,purple batik, and the snow on the peaks is thread painted with white thread.
I found the border fabric when we drove up to Canmore last week and I am happy with the way the colors work.
I hope you like it! Shirley
