I recently joined an online international art quilt group, http://stitched-art-textles.blogspot.fr/
and we have planned to work in series on a theme of our choice.
We have to make 4 pieces in a year and I decided my work would be based on a trip to Tuscany I made 2 years ago.
These are my first drawings and I decided to play with lights and darks. I will keep the same design throughout the year.
I was not really happy with the flowers on the bottom right, so I decided not to include them in the final design.
This is the final quilt. It is pieced and raw edge applique, then free motion quilted. No binding, just a facing to keep a contemporary look to the quilt.
