Quilt Show Wednesday

Usually my favorite quilt I have made is what ever I am working on at the time. However, I made this one in 2007 and I still really like it.


My version of VanGogh's Starry, Starry Night. It was made for my guild's challenge in 2007. The theme was your favorite song title. It measures 28" wide by 24" high. I'm not sure Don McLean's Starry, Starry Night is my favorite song, but I do really like and I like the painting. It was a real challenge for me at the time. There are things I would do differently if I was making this today, but this was the best I could do at the time and better than I thought I could do at the time. It was the first art quilt I made that actually turned out even close to what I envisioned in my head!
