I couldn't attend the museum visit so had to depend on Google to get a good feel for his body of work. Now I'm going to let you in on a little secret - I know absolutely nothing about modern art. So I had to rely solely on my gut when it came to choosing one of his pieces as my inspiration.
I also had to choose something that I could make into a quilt so I went with something fairly simple.
I pieced the quilt from Kona solids (Black, Red and Ocean). I wanted the modern feel to continue with the quilting so decided to go with straight lines with my walking foot.
I quilted some of the lines with black thread, others with blue and red. It's really hard to capture the real colours in these photos, but trust me, it's really cool in person. :-)
The next challenge of the Montreal MQG is to design and create a quilt based on a Montreal metro station. The metro system in Montreal is celebrating its 50th birthday this year and many stations have really beautiful works of art on display - some of the stations themselves are works of art!
I chose the metro station closest to my house and the one that takes me home every night... I can't wait to get started!
But first, my friend Shannon of s/f Designs is getting ready to publish a pattern and I offered to test it for her. So that's the first priority for me over the next few days.
Will be linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts and at http://busyhandsquilts.blogspot.ca/ for TGIFF.
