Imagine yourself camping beside the shore of a lake. Just before dawn, you climb out of your tent; it’s chilly. The air smells of damp earth and foliage; all is still. The mist is so heavy that you can’t yet see the lake’s edge; but you make your way toward it to greet the rising sun. You know that in a couple of minutes, all around you will become clear, but, for a moment, all that you see are the beautiful colors of the new day reflecting off of the mist . . . That moment is my inspiration for Horizon.
Horizon is a strip-friendly quilt composed of a series of pieced 60° triangles. 2-1/2 inch strips are joined prior to cutting the triangles. (8) different pieced triangles are arranged to create (4) different groups. Groups are arranged to create 3 columns, which are joined to complete the center of the quilt. Three borders are joined as one set, and attached to the center; an outer border wraps the quilt to finish the setting.
Many, many thanks to Kara Headrick & Shawn Leighton for making “Horizon” look so good!
