Jo Ann Gilbert based this quilt upon a photo she took from a cruise ship. Jo Ann is a very artistic quilter who has won awards at big shows. One of her quilts was featured on a book cover.
On this quilt, she really made the sunset and reflections glow.
It was hard to tell where the sky ended and the water began, so I quilted everything with sort of a cloudy-like, wavy meander.
Jo Ann pieced the backing and batting to use up her fabric and supplies, but it was a little too short on the sides to mount on the machine.
I added muslin strips and did a lot of basting to keep the quilt taut.
She made a label and stitched it on so it would be sewn in with the quilting. I have several customers who do that.
I think some of the sunset fabric was from fabric painter Mickey Lawler.
