50″ x 52″
This is my husband’s favorite quilt and one of my favorites as well. I created the sky with fabrics I hand-dyed and then married together with extensive threadwork. I designed the lighthouse and used organza over the light and soutache for the black trim. I hand-painted the commercial lighthouse a darker shade on one side with textile paint showing the direction of the sun. I also hand painted the sea water, adding the implication of foamy waves hitting the rocks with white textile paint that I sponged. I created the foliage on the rocks with thread and also colored the rocks with fabric markers.
