Design Concept

The inspiration for this quilt came from photos we took in 2016 in the Baptistery of St. John in Pisa, Italy (Battistero di San Giovanni: started in 1152). Rather than trying to reproduce the photo in fabric, I created a composition that captures the feeling one has inside the building, looking up at the lofty arches with the light streaming in.

I started by compressing the photo into a square and making a (much simplified) drawing in pen. The drawing was scanned into the computer and colored in Corel Draw. This is not a final color rendering. I'm just playing with some colors and values to get a general idea of what is likely to work.

All of the fabrics in the quilt came from the various collections I have designed for Benartex.
