Art with Fabric Blog Hop - Day 1

Every quilted project is a unique piece of art, full of love, creativity and inspiration.

However, have you ever thought about how "traditional" art could be reinterpreted in a quilted piece?
(by "traditional" I mean anything that a non-quilter will label as art, like paintings, drawings, sculptures, architecture from all countries and all time periods).

To explore the endless possibilities of art-inspired quilted pieces I decided to organize this Blog Hop!
I invited some of my blogging quilty friends and we are going to present our unique pieces.

DAY 1. Here are today's amazing pieces!
"The pitcher and the knives" by Maartje
Inspired by the work of Henri Matisse
"Poodle at Daybreak" by Lee Anna 
Inspired by the work of Maxfield Parrish
"Sheila - Study in Primary Colours or
Light at the end of the Tunnel" by AndrĂ©e 
Inspired by the work of Sheila Langlois
"Starry Night Over the Rhone,
Thread Painting" by Renee 
Inspired by the work of Vincent Van Gogh
