At The Quilter's Affair in Sister's OR this summer I took a 2 day class from Hilde Morin titled Cityscapes. It was a wonderful class where I stretched myself to create a quilt from a photo using piecing only, no applique allowed.
Everyone showed their photos at the start, I had one of Friday Harbor, which on reflection seemed too complex for a first project. Diana was working from this photo and let me share. It seemed much more manageable.
I had 2 very productive days and came away with this almost completed quilt top.
And now it is done. As I see the pictures together I realize I lost one of the unique aspects, the wonderful perspective of the upward view of the building. After a rocky start with the machine quilting, I found my groove and really enjoyed the process.
Update: 1/21/2014 I now know where the picture was taken. It is Hundertwasser Village in Vienna. Norma has a similar picture on her blog that she is going to work from.
