Dreaming of Quilts

“I dream my painting and I paint my dream.”
Vincent Van Gogh

I love this quote!  I just have to replace painting with quilting!

The design on the central portion of this quilt is a variant on a military helmet found in Italy and dated to approximately 325 BC.  The side designs were just a take off of the central design.  I found the teal fabric on a trip one summer in Grand Island Nebraska.  It has been looking at me for awhile.  I couldn’t bear to cut it up into little pieces so decided to used it in bigger swatches.
