I found the loveliest little note card at Barnes & Noble, featuring Monet's Waterlillies. I have always loved Monet's work - especially his florals, which I had the great pleasure of seeing in person when my grandmother and I went to about 16 years ago (!!) but I remember being in awe at the beautiful colors right in front of me.

Since I learned this new "Impressionistic" technique, I decided to honor Monet with my own version of the Waterlillies painting I found on this notecard.

This listing is for the result of this effort - an art quilt with my own version of Monet's Waterlillies.

Created with over 20 different fabrics, generous stitching and overstitching with variegated threads, and framed with frayed-edge silk sari ribbon in two layers.

Fabrics used include: my own UFOs, recycled clothing, scraps and remnants, and "ugly" Goodwill clothing!! : )

See this project on my blog for more details:


Thank you!
