Introducing: The Mona Lisa

I knew I only had the time (and space in the Market booth!) for a couple of The Fine Art Series quilts. So I had to decide which would have the most impact. The first one I chose was the Mona Lisa. It’s such an iconic painting that those who aren’t even art buffs have seen it before.

This was along a pretty major road in our little part of Seattle. I wonder how many odd looks I got from the morning commuters!

I made all of these patterns a generous lap size. I couldn’t imagine putting it on our bed so the larger bed sizes were out. But it is the perfect quilt to snuggle under on the couch. So lap size it was!

If you’re going to Salt Lake, visit Booth 1740 to see Mona. She rocks!

Want to make one? Buy the pattern here. All of The Fine Art Series have the exact Kona colors listed so there is no guess work as to which of the 30 greens in the Kona palette you need to put where.

I’ve got a potential project related to these patterns that I’ve been pondering a for a couple months. It’s quite an investment to get started, but would be very fun to do. I’ll still have to think on that.

I should have the other booth sample back from Ms. Longarmer in a week or so. Those pictures to come later!

    WOW! Amazing. Absolutely amazing. I am in awe of how great all the fine art quilts look. At first I only saw the Mona Lisa and was amazed that anyone could make that out of fabric and then I saw all the other fine art quilts and I don’t know how you do it! Oh, the brainpower and forethought you possess. I wish I had an ounce of that! Thank you for the patterns. I hope one day I will get up the nerve to try one!
