Behold! My last minute (and only) entry for the 2014 Pantone Quilt Challenge.
I've been planning this one for weeks, but was just able to get to it this week.
This wall quilt measures 19 inches by 15 inches and is inspired by Monet's Houses of Parliament series of paintings. I used fusible to create the scene, then quilted the daylights out of it!
Now before you think I am the bee's knees for coming up with this idea. I must admit that for a couple of weeks there, I was surrounded by purple Houses of Parliament. It was one of the more recent projects that I taught to my daughters' classes at school through the Hands on Art program. When Anne at Play-Crafts announced the Pantone color challenge the same week I was painting and teaching this purplicious project, I knew it was fate that I would attempt to make one in quilt form.
How did I do? If you like what you see, head on over to Play-Crafts to see all the other awesome entries.
If you are interested in a more detailed step by step how I made this quilt, I took photos along the way and here is the tutorial so you can make your own.
Thanks for reading today,
