ORANGE DRIP A whole cloth Art Quilt. Photos of vintage boat create interesting textures that were printed to fabric. The photos were manipulated to create abstract images and printed to a yard of fabric. The whole piece of cloth was quilted and embellished into a single art quilt.

Quilted Art That Tells a Story

Quilted Art That Tells a Story. 

by Sandy Sanders, designer.

 

Curiosity and a serendipitous encounter started me on this creative quilt journey. While on vacation in Cayman Brac, a small island, I walked the beach and explored. One day I spotted a dilapidated boat in the trees offshore. I took macro photos of the boat surface, which produced some very interesting artistic textures.

 

But the story doesn’t end there. That evening I struck up a conversation with a gentleman at the resort. He said he was a museum curator researching a sailboat, Teignmouth Electron, which was the boat I happened upon that day. The curator said the original owner of the boat was an amateur sailor, Donald Crowhurst, who entered the Sunday Times Golden Globe Race – the first single-handed yacht race around the world in 1968!

 

The fascinating story became my quilt inspiration.
