Quilting can take on many forms and this past week we were able to see a fabulous display of creativity, quilting, and culture.
Presenting Dorothy W.’s latest design: Sunrise Over the Mountains.
This Fancy Dance shawl was custom created for Dorothy’s daughter-in-law who participates in the Native American tradition of Fancy Dance. The shawl inspiration came from her daughter-in-law, who gave Dorothy creative licensing to visually produce a sunrise over the mountains and lake.
The beautiful ribbons, which according to Dorothy, took the most time (and patience!), represent feathers. Her secret: use a wood burner to seal the ends of the ribbons.
Can you believe she’s only been quilting for a year?
