from Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
Today I want to share with you the a quilt I made some years ago for a contest. I have used a portion of this quilt on my home page. My alter ego I guess.
The theme of the contest was to do an art quilt based on a book. I choose the book Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy. This is one of my favorite books. I first read it when I was a young woman. The life of the Russian aristocracy seemed so exotic and extravagant, I was captured by the romance of it all.
I used a variety of techniques to create this quilt including beading, embroidery and painting on fabric.
Have a fun day!
