Solid Swap - Part 2

For the Solid Swap Challenge, I selected "Blue Vase" by Vincent van Gogh.
Irene's version is perfect, I love the flowers that she machine quilted with light, airy stitches.
My version of the Blue Vase.  When I looked at the painting, I saw triangles of flowers.
I added hand stitched flowers to my quilt.
When Irene mailed her two quilts to me, she included some beautiful fabric that she had hand dyed.  I also received some colorful thread.  Thank you Irene for being a great swap partner and for the quilts and gifts.

  1. Hi, Ellen. Loved this idea of a small art quilt inspired by a piece of art. How did you find this project? I would like to try an online quilt group at some point. You are so crafty!!
