Quilted Love

“When I do things without any explanation, but just with spontaneity…I can be sure that I am right.”
– Federico Fellini

Quilted Love

5″ x 7″ Watercolor & Sharpie

This is another Valentine.  This has just been so much fun.  I really do think it’s time to try some more quilting with paint.  🙂

About Federico Fellini

Famed Italian director Federico Fellini is known for the dreamlike logic and rich symbolism in Oscar- winning films like La Strada, La Dolce Vita, 8 ½, and Amarcord. His films often featured his wife, actress Giulietta Masina, and his onscreen alter-ego, actor Marcello Mastroiann. He was born in 1920 in Rimini. After he’d begun his film career, he opened a store named the Funny Face Shop, where he sold his drawings and artwork from other filmmakers. His 1993 funeral was attended by thousands of fans.

    OMG! These are so cute! And so dimensional! And so child-like! I love them! A weaver myself, I really appreciate textile art in general and quilting specifically.

      Thanks, Alex! I love textile arts! I quilted years ago and it was impossible to just do quilt patterns. I couldn’t resist making pictures. Weaving is a beautiful art form!

    This is very cool, I have always admired the old quilting that my grandmother and aunt has done. To me it was an artwork on its own.

    I “Heart” it! Seriously, these pieces are very attractive and I would think commercially valuable. Good luck with your quilting…
