This is my fourth time participating in the Blogger's Quilt Festival sponsored by Amy at Amy's Creative Side. We owe a big thanks to her for hosting another festival. Be sure to check out all the entries if you want to be inspired, wowed, and make some new friends, too.
My entry is my Matisse quilt which was gifted to my husband. My husband introduced me to the art of Henri Matisse when we were in college, and the first art we bought after we were married was a Matisse museum poster that we framed for our living room. The minute I saw the Matisse line of fabric at Hawthorne Threads, I knew I would be making a quilt.
I used a simple block and interspersed it with larger fussy cut pieces from the large print in the collection (by Alexander Henry fabrics).
I used a serpentine stitch with my straight line quilting. The batting is Dream Wool.
Roscoe's Pa really likes it and falls asleep under it often!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and please come back sometime!
