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.


The quilt is 48by58inches.  It is hand appliqued and hand quilted.  It was completed in 2016.
