Blogger's Quilt Festival - Fall 2016 - Mini quilt

I made this little piece for the forth challenge of Project Quilting (season 7). I had a double challenge for myself: follow the theme of the PQ challenge ("Need a Vacation") and have a piece inspired by a "conventional" art piece (painting, sculpture, architecture, ...).

Let me introduce you...

Size: 20'' x 20''
"Vacation from reality".

I really like the weird shapes and general compositions of Salvador Dali and Vacation to me means a nice sunset. I think I combined the two in an effective way with some applique, quilting and thread sketching.

This is my second entry for the Blogger Quilt Festival, Mini Quilt!
The fist entry is here (applique)

If you are new around here, WELCOME!
If you have been around for a while, THANKS AND WELCOME BACK! :)

If you are new around here, let me just point you to my main addiction: designing and sharing for free tons of paper piecing patterns :)

As you can see from one of my old headers arrangement, I design patterns for Disney characters, Peanuts and Snoopy, Downton Abbey, Alice in Wonderland but I have many many more (Maleficent, The Simpsons, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Betty Boop, Minions and more)!! Some of them have to be tested, some of there are tested. You can find them just navigating the different tabs or just typing the character name in the search box at the top of the page.

Speaking of art and quilts... 

An event coming up on this blog: the Fall edition of my "Art with Fabric Blog Hop"!!
