quilts of the past

Fenestre Ouverte by Matisse

In June 2011, Victoria ( 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."
