Red Rock Island

Red Rock Island, 42″ wide x 51″ high

I see the palette of this quilt every day in the rocky outcroppings, trees, wildflowers and sunshine that abound in the San Francisco Bay Area. The colors remind me in particular of Red Rock Island, off Point Richmond.

But my island colors float in purple, rather than sea-water blues, simply because I can never get enough purple.
