The Starry Night

Saturday was our September meeting for the Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild.

Alissa brought her recently completed The Starry Night for Show and Tell.
Beautifully done!

70" X 55"
O.H. M.Y.
This quilt is now on my to-do list!
The Starry Night is a digitally simulated quilt created by Emily Ceir of Carolina Patchworks.
Using Robert Kaufman Kona solids, the pixelated imagery is the quilted version of Vincent van Gogh's Starry Night.
One of my most favorite pieces of art.

The quilting really makes this quilt!
Machine quilted by Brook Norris




The back is as interesting as the front.


The Starry Night pattern is available from Carolina Patchworks
*I just downloaded the PDF version.

That Starry Night turned out just beautiful. I have been thinking about doing that for some time since I made the Mona Lisa...

My daughter's favorite piece of art. A print hangs in her room. I love to play with digital art. Take a photo, go to pic monkey (well you were able to do it in Picnik) and digitize it. Print, cut and sew. This is a really beautiful quilt.

The tarry night is a gret quilt pattern, I immediately recognized it as the van goth print! You are right, the quilting would have to be done in swirls.

It is beautiful, but not sure I could do it without messsing it up a zillion times!
