Sailing Into the Sunset

Sailing Away 2011

Sailing Away 2011

Many times I am inspired to create a quilt by a piece of beautiful fabric. That was the case with this little sailboat quilt, “Sailing Away”.  I had a beautiful piece of hand-painted fabric by Mickey Lawler of Skydyes that reminded me of a gorgeous New Mexico sunset, where there is definitely a lack of water.  Still, I was inspired to use it as a backdrop for a sailboat.  This quilt is featured as a pattern on page 38 of the March/April 2011 issue of Quiltmaker Magazine.
