Calm Before the Storm

Calm Before the Storm

Sky is handpainted with DecoArt SoSoft and Pebeo Pearlescent paint. Clouds are made of polyester fiberfill captured under blue tulle. Lower strata cloud layer is composed of painted batting and dryer lint that has been hand felted to a piece of acrylic felt. Bottom edge is irregular to further convey that stormy feeling. Sides and top edge are bound by matching raw edges of binding with front of quilt, sewing and turning inside out. Edges on back side of binding is slip stiched. I love the calm and tranquil feeling this piece imparts
