Welcome those of you visiting from the Blogger's Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side. My I present my entry for the Art Quilt category: My Monet.
I created this quilt for the 2014 Pantone Quilt Challenge. It was inspired by an art lesson that I taught about Monet's Houses of Parliament series of paintings.
I had so much fun making this quilt! And I must admit, it came out MUCH better than the painting I made during the art lessons!! I am embarrassed to even show that.
I think it is Purpilicious!
Size: This wall quilt measures 19 inches by 15 inches
Design: is inspired by Monet's Houses of Parliament series of paintings, and an art lesson taught through the Hands on Art program at my daughter's school.
Techniques: I used fusible to create the scene, then quilted the daylights out of it!
Quilting: by Me! I used a variety of threads for the quilting. Basically anything I had that was purple; I know several of them were Auriful. The gray threads were a So Fine Superior Thread.
Fabric: various Kona cotton solids.
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 Monet.
I hope you will consider my entry in the art quilt category.
Thanks for stopping by,
