|Fenestre Ouverte by Matisse|
In June 2011, Victoria (www.15minutesplay.com) issued a challenge. Take a work of art for inspiration, use solid fabric only, and create a 15"x15" quilt to swap with another challenge member.
I chose this picture.
I created the quilt on an island in Maine with no electricity, so the whole thing was hand pieced and hand quilted.
I tried several versions before I was satisfied.
This is the quilt I sent off to Laura. I called it "Fragments of Matisse" or "Views from a Window."
