Influenced by Gaudi
I am working on one of my Houston Exhibition quilts. I had two main inspirations - the mosaic above from Gaudi's Parc Guell and his paving stones design in Barcelona.
I made a thermofax screen of the paving design and printed hundreds before hand stitching them together. I must be mad.
I am now in the process of overpainting the quilt using the mosaic as inspiration.
My Aurifil Threads have been ordered and I can't wait to start quilting.
