150 Years from his birthday. Read more about Klimt here .
I like his works. First my patchwork inspired by Klimt was a curtain.
Now it is "The tree of life". With his spiral branches and gorgeous look of the woman's dress.
A set of three mini quilts. 4 3/4 inches squares. You might say it is too small.
To fit IKEA's frames.
Golden taffeta (small pieces left from my curtains) and polyester silk in mint green, neon purple, deep dark blue (on my pics it looks like black).
I decide to use as a back fabric a sheet of paper..
Yes, you are reading right - PAPER.
This gives two advantages:
The first - the quilting will be more bold.
The second - it is easy to stick on the cardboard inside the frame.
I have added thin layer of batting and stuck to the paper with tape.
Quilting was like the tree's branches.
I like the depth of the frame. It helps the quilt to be seen well.
The next one from here
to the frame
All three together.
