This Carolyn Friedlander quilt pays tribute to her favorite time of day, the sunrise. Fro Carolyn, the sunrise represents a feeling of opportunity and possibility. Every morning it is a little different from the day before and, across the seasons, it changes dramatically. The pattern works well with a wide range of solid or printed fabrics, and the mood, themes, and season of the quilt will change according to your choices. Here, Carolyn used sherbet shades to make it feel fresh and summery.
