This art quilt, "Love In The City" was published in "Art Quilting Studio" earlier this year and is now available for sale.
It is a 14.5" square and has a sleeve hand sewn on the back, ready to be hung on your wall.

I love the idea of using architecture as an inspiration base. I struggled with not wanting it to be too literal, but still obviously connected to the original idea. This quilt had a very long train of thought

The Empire State Building with the heart comes from the movie, "Sleepless in Seattle". I then moved this icon into a very feminine, lovey version of Van Gogh's "Starry Night". I wanted to have fun with well known icons and shake it up. What if Van Gogh had focused on a building in his piece rather than nature? I played with taking a literal representation and a more impressionistic background.

The quilt is raw edge applique.There is lots of free motion quilting - I played with using different color bobbin threads to see the results. I also painted all over it in both fabric and acrylic craft paint.
