Orcas Ferry Landing Quilt

My latest quilt is called Home on the Late Boat, and depicts the Orcas ferry landing at night.  This is a small quilt, so it didn't take me half a lifetime to piece or stitch.  It will be one of the quilts in my show at the Orcas Center.  The builting is a little lopsided, but I like the light shining down on the Orcas sign.

I painted a piece of white Kona cotton with Intense color sticks to make the piece of light fabric under the letters.  I wanted that pool of yellow light that spread out to a cooler white, and couldn't get it by piecing fabric.
