Summer Sizzle

Posted in Twitter Quilts...Twilts tagged , , , , , , , at 5:24 PM by Shelley Swanland

Hope everyone is having a nice summer. I just got back to my twilting and made my newest Twilt, “Summer Sizzle”. It’s the middle of August and the batik fabric with the sunflower just screamed Summer. After adding the border fabrics that are, I admit, a little out of my ordinary choices, I machine quilted around the Batik design with a varigated King Tut quilting thread from Superior. I then added french knots.

If you click on the pictures you can see a high resolution version.

    Hellooo Shelley!
    We are enjoying a great Summer, touring the Great Lakes!

    Summer Sizzle is beautiful. It makes me think of an African Sunrise!

    Hope you are having a good Summer!
