L'Autumno by Elaine Ross
This is the quilt I created for the "Nature Behind Bars" Challenge exhibit. The quilts will hang at the Genesee Valley Quilt Show in June and then possibly become a traveling exhibit to major quilt shows. In preparation, the quilts were judged by a professional judge and 4 prizes were award. I am THRILLED to have won "Best Interpretation of Theme".
The quilt is based on a photo I took at Longwood Gardens in October of 2011. I had the photo printed onto fabric by Julie Brandon - http://red-dogenterprises.com/. I then printed part of Vivaldi's Four Seasons music - the autumn movement, aptly named "LAutumno" onto sheer organza and layered that over the very top of the quilt.
I love Longwood Gardens at any season of the year - one of my "favoritest" places to visit. The quilt honors one of those seasons.
