Width: 20" Length: 27"
Materials/Techniques: Silk fabrics, textile paints, inks, thread.
Artist Statement: "Red sky at night, sailor's delight. Red in the morning, sailors take warning." A former live-aboard sailor myself, this quilt was a delight to create. It started with white silk which I painted with textile paints and inks. The sky and water are one piece of fabric; the sailboat, island and yellow strips in the water are fused on. I used thread painting to add detail to the scene and for the rigging of the boat.
Dedication: Dedicated to William, my spirit guide.
This quilt has a traditional sleeve.
This quilt earned $210 for the AAQI.
