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.

Most adventurous and unusual, will be gorgeous when finished.

OMG! Lisa! What a massive achievement! It looks wonderful. No wonder you upsized that thermofax!

I have the same photo of the pavers in Barcelona! I've been working on a different interpretaton, My fascination was with the roof that looked like dragon scales.
