Departure of the Sun

The word chosen for this month's Fiberactions challenge quilt is Departure... the sky fabric was the inspiration...there was a patch of yellow in the fabric that looked like the sun setting....departing for the day.

 Departure of the Sun 16" X 20"

I used my own purple hand dyed fabrics with the sky piece made by my friend Sue.

I used some of my variegated threads for the applique and quilting.

The house quilt below is another departure quilt of sorts. I was commissioned by a friend to make it for lovely family who just move to Missouri. I took a picture of their house and printed it onto fabric, then created the patchwork watercolor border using some of the leftovers from the Massachusetts Historical Quilt in the last post.
