Fire on the Lake

Jan Sneesby Aaron

Machine quilted, painted on fabric, hand embellished


This little quilt is a total departure for me as I have never attempted to paint one. I canít say as though it was a workshop or teacher that inspired me to try it. Rather, it was a photograph of a spectacular sunrise one morning this past winter. I live in a high-rise in the Loop overlooking the lake and took the picture from my bedroom window. It caught the edge of the Columbia Yacht club and the moorings just south of it. The harbor was glowing red-gold as the water was frozen. Did I succeed? I can't tell. Will I do another? Not sure about that either. All in all, though, I found it fulfilling to give it a try.
