Quilt, "Red Sky at Night"
By textile artist Karla Irby, this medallion sampler quilt measures 60x73 inches. All of the colors were carefully chosen to coordinate the focus fabric, Kauffman "Effervescent, Black". The intricately detailed quilting in this piece gives the design dimension and makes it absolutely pop. There are two battings, one wool and the other a black cotton blend. There is a layer of unbleached wool between each colored star and the black cotton batting. This adds dimension and helps the colors show true. This piece is a testament to "the quilting makes the quilt."
