Shades of Sunshine Quilties: Darlene Kihne ~ South Dakota

Here is another Sunshine Quilties package that made me swoon! Darlene from South Dakota send 5 very labor intensive and beautifully beaded Sunshine quilties in for our swap due September 20th. have a look at all of them, below:

Darlene created "encrusted buttons" (beaded) for her sunshine quilties. She told me she had no instructions, although she has seen them in books. She says she may never make them again because of the hours involved! (Ha ha -she says she LOVEs to bead) The yellow quilties Darlene made are hand dyed silk and dupioni binding. She created her own backgrounds with batik fabrics, hand dyed cheesecloth & ribbons. She also used feathers, metallic mesh & Angelina fibers - wow whee! I'm impressed. Thank you so much, Darlene.
