This dramatic design is one of our most popular!  This design was my hubby's idea, and I've heard many times that I 'nailed' the image of a summer storm in the desert.  

 I find it very interesting that men at the quilt shows are always drawn to this one.  We've sold many Desert Storm kits to quilters at the 'urging' of their husband.... he only has to point to it and say, "I like that one."  Enough said....  most of us don't need more 'urging' than that.

This design starts with a piece of hand-dyed fabric with a nice ‘light area’ in which to free motion stitch your lightning.  I custom dye each piece of sky for the kits.

The saguaro cactus is three-dimensional in two ways; the ridges of the cactus are emulated with 'pin tucks' using a twin needle, then make it really come to 3-D life with my easy trapunto method.  No slashing or poking in stuffing here! 

Top it all off with beautiful thread drawn trees that you create on water soluble stabilizer then add to your quilt. 

Add some drama with the metallic lightning and raindrops. 

This is a very simple, but very dramatic quilt.
