Sunrise of a New Day

Hand Painted Sunrise Landscape Quilt

Hand Painted Sunrise Landscape Quilt

I made this quilt for my mom for her 50th Birthday. She always liked sunrises and had a big bare wall just screaming for a quilt to hang on it.

The sky was painted with Setacolor translucent paints. I get these paints online at Dharma Trading Company. I’m really tempted to buy some of their dye ready outfits and experiment with them too.

The landscape portion of the quilt was created using a technique I learned from Ann Holmes in Asheville, NC.

I’m really pleased with how this turned out and plan to make more painted landscapes soon.  Learn more about this quilt and how it was designed here.
