Canada has glorious sunsets!!  I was inspired by the changing colors of the setting sun and the instant moment when the prairie earth is reflected in multi colors.  The design uses 200 “dot” batik fabrics that were individually cut into ¾ inch strips.  Each strip is quilted to the batting and backing fabric using the “quilt as you go” technique on a domestic sewing machine.
