2020 VQS – Monet Challenge – K Johnson COPY
Members the GAAQG Small Group 'Eight-Mile Radius' were asked to interpret this famous painting in fabric, using the method and design of their choice.
Original painting by Claude Monet
The colors and the brushstrokes of Monet's painting inspired the colors and textures I created.

Silks, cottons for stability, pattern, and texture; flip and sew, applique, beading, and fancy sewing machine stitches are all in my quilt. The challenge pressed me to new vision and techniques.

Monet Lily Pad Quilt #2
My quilt took a more literal interpretation of the painting. Noriko Endo and Anne Loveless have books using a confetti techniques. The frog, from my button box, found a home.

Making an impression of an impressionist was difficult for this artistically challenged quilter. My stash and pieces from silk clothing were used. I finally said, "Enough, you're DONE!"

My impression of Monet’s “Water Lilies.”

Yellow Water Lilies
I love Monet's paintings. The inspiration painting's water was painted in vertical strokes. I think of water as horizontal. So, I replicated the vertical water strokes with fabric.
