Hundertwasser inspired art quilt project!

I belong to a small group within my art quilt group (RAFA - Rochester Area Fiber Artists) that is currently working on small 12 x 12 pieces inspired by different artists.   Our first venture was Henri Matisse and this time we chose architect and artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser.   I was impressed with his use of spirals, bright colors and black as a bold contrast.   My flowers are based on a spiral multi colored button I found at my local quilt shop.   Then I found a piece of black spiraled fabric in my stash and decided to contrast the two against a bright colored landscape background.   Even the stems are spiraled.   And, if you look closely the jolting is all done with free motion spirals.
