Another one of my quilts made it out of the UFO pile this week. After 4 years and a move across the country I finally finished Chugach Sunset. This inspiration for this piece was the Chugach mountain range that we had the pleasure of viewing from the back of our house when we lived in Alaska. Towards the end of the summer season when the stars became visible again we were treated to some of the most colorful sunsets with the mountains as a backdrop.
The french braid pattern on this 90X120 inch quilt are designed to represent the mountains and the colors that can be found at the different altitudes. I love the colors and the stained glass feel of the finished top…. No more big tops until the winter.
