Illumination Celebration

by Nikki

My inspiration was from photos of fireworks I took on the Fourth of July and a wonderful photo of the sun rising through the trees in my back yard (see my blogpost).

To create my quilt, I painted the background with Dyn-a-flow paints. For the light burst, I used metallic paints and added thread painting with metallic thread. The edges I finished with a fuzzy yarn.
