Artist Statement
I saw this beautiful fabric and I immediately wanted to do a kaleidoscope quilt. I framed the center to focus on the beautiful sunrise. I also hand appliqued some bluebonnets and Indian paintbrush to accent the quilt. Embellished with quilting, thread painting and Swarovski crystals.
