Sunset in Santa Fe Detail



Maggi asked me how I quilted this, so I thought I'd post a close up of one area of the quilt. The quilting shows up well on the background in this picture, but not as well on the star. I used various variegated threads in the star sections - different thread for each spikey area - and quilted flames in the narrow spikes, triangles in the wider spikes, and rays in the centers. You can see the quilting a bit better if you click on the picture to make it bigger.

I want to quilt and sew so badly but I cant do it until next year. Your work is beautiful and colorful!
