The original inspiration for this quilt came from when I used to live with my boyfriend (now husband) at Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas. We hiked in the Franklin Mountains and enjoyed spectacular sunsets at night. 

When I saw the Warp and Weft line by Ruby Star Society I knew immediately I wanted to use it for this pattern. The combination of orangey brown, light pinks and purples, and navy fabric is exactly what I think of when I think back to my time in El Paso. 

 I made the wall hanging size, and it turned out exactly as I imagined.
