red sky at night

currently a new piece in my ongoing series exploring the idea of "quilts" beyond the normal expectation -- this piece is entitled - red sky at night - it is composed of rug canvas to which i have applied knotted carpet warp to form squares that enclose handsewn fabric pillows - the name comes from the old sailor addage - red sky at night , sailors delight -- i have tried to create a piece that reflects the wonder of the colorful sunsets that one sometimes can view as one looks to the west over great bodies of water

Yes! This is the one I fell in love with at the FASA 2012 Exhibit. Just stunning.
