Quilting Van Gogh by Annette

On a visit to the home and gravesite of Vincent Van Gogh I was handed a brochure with a beautiful print of Wheatfield under Thunderclouds, painted by Van Gogh in 1890 during his troubling last few weeks prior to his death by suicide.

It is a striking piece of art and when I returned home I decided to see if this could be reproduced in fabric.  Having never done anything like this before it truly was a case of trial and error.  It was fun using various mediums to try and recreate the scene, and helped me to remember what a great time I had in France. I’m looking forward to finding something else to recreate on my next adventure.

Thank you Vincent Van Gogh for sharing your amazing talent.

Fellow sewers, what are you working on, we’d love to see some of your creations.

 

Happy sewing from Annette at Two Flying Geese.
