Design Concept

In the summer of 2013 my husband Ron charted a boat and we spent ten days cruising in the San Juan and Canadian Gulf islands north of our home on Puget Sound. One of our favorite ports was Cowichan, BC, where the harbor was dominated by the headquarters of the Cowichan Wooden Boat Society.

The building had railings which cast dramatic shadows in the water beneath. In the late evening, everything was black and white. By zooming in on the reflections I found dramatic images that looked like abstract expressionist paintings. The design for this quilt was inspired by one of my photographs.

The fabrics are from my Gradations collection for Benartex.

This is one of two quilts made from the same design. They are negative and positive images which may be hung together as a diptych or hung separately as single pieces.
