I'm needing to make a quilt for our bed as a remembrance of the trip. I've got it nearly worked out in my head and just need to do some sketches, review pictures, buy fabric,..... it is all just so overwhelming! I know I want the main part of the quilt to be a depiction of the different marble floors we saw in the Duomos. I took lots of pictures of church floors!
Here you see the floors of San Marco in Venice. As I was taking the pictures water was creeping in to flood parts of the church during high tide. Just amazing. Are these not examples of patch work quilts???
These floors were just spellbinding. I just wanted to stand and study them. So many different patterns and colors. I'm thinking I can capture the look using the Stonehenge Marbles fabric by Northcott.
I think I need to do different, irregular sections to the center part of the quilt. However, what I'm visualizing for the parts that will cover the sides of the bed is more in the line of an art quilt. I want to do Tuscan countryside, vineyards, olive trees... Well, that's another blog entry altogether. For now I'm going to tackle the Duomo Floors!
