Cinde Hoppe. I am no quilter. I can’t stitch in a straight line for one thing. But if I were quilting these clouds, I wouldn’t have to. This is really beautiful. I can’t figure out if it is all fabric pieced together or if the artist painted on the fabric first and then quilted on top of it. If the latter, I could see this as a future project of mine.
