Okay, here's a finish--I am so proud! I finally made a quilt for myself, finishing at about 80 X80. the fabric is Valori Wells' Del Hi line.
This is my interpretation of Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater home during the fall season. the binding is the orange stone, except at the bottom right quadrant where it is blue.
Here is a photo, courtesy of Ivan S. Abrams, from which I drew my inspiration. Do you see what I did?:
I've decided to enter this quilt in the Project Modern Challenge, so here's my 100 words about this quilt:
"My interpretation of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater is a vertical chimney and extending horizontal terraces at the top of the quilt, above rocky falls at the bottom. I added an improvisational flower & sienna background fabric as a suggestion of the home’s lush, fall foliage. I have quilted this in a free-hand undulating wave pattern (top to bottom, vertically) to mimic the waterfall. I love the way this home is linear, yet the water softens its stern concrete and rock; I wanted to transfer these contradictory qualities into a quilt utilizing earth tones with just a pinch of blue. "
Wish me luck!!
