Simple, yet eye catching, I think.

What materials did you use? Cotton fabric, fleece batting

What are you most proud of? The colors are spot on with the painting. It has clean lines, and I was able to sew straight for a long time, so I didn't mess up the edges! Yay, me! LOL

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just have fun. It comes together quickly. I used a fleece material, since the middle of the color blocks are not quilted. I just quilted around the black, so you need a good batting that won't shift around when the quilt is used, or washed.

Very cool! This is such a great painting, and you did an incredible job! Congrats on the straight lines! I've been thinking how cool it would be to do something like this with Sonia Delaunay paintings or Rothko! :)

Hi, Margieoh. There is no pattern, I designed it myself. I just took an image of the art piece from the internet, printed it, and measured it, then converted it to a larger scale. I usually measure in centimeters, and use one cm. to equal 1, 2, 3, 4 inches-whatever I want! Graph paper is my friend when I make designs. I just drew until I liked the composition and counted the squares. I know these are general instructions, but I really didn't do exact measurements. I hope this helps.

How do you cut everything so square? Do you fold things in half or quarters and cut? I have trouble cutting such big squares "square".
