quilted wall art

I've wanted to make some sort of quilted wall art for our living for ages now. I was hoping to make something simple and modern, with minimal piecing and solid fabrics only. Something like this absolutely stunning quilt by Nicole or these showstoppers by Luise Gray. 

Truth is though, I had no good ideas of my own. And then I came across this tutorial 
which I absolutely loved. So, I decided to shamelessly copy this masterpiece by Ethan Cook (I am hoping to eventually swap it for my own idea but for now it will have to do) :) and got to work.

I pieced, and quilted, and quite dreaded the idea of having to buy wood, stain it, cut it, and assemble my own frame, when I suddenly realized I had a large picture frame in the basement. And, wouldn't you know it? It was a perfect size. So, I removed the glass, wrapped quilted patchwork around the board, popped it back in, and I was done.

Now, I will admit, I do like the wood frame better, but I decided to be realistic and enjoy it just the way it is :).

Wishing you all a super lovely day, friends. Svetlana


  1. Lovely. I want to try this one of these days too!

  2. I love how you just go for it! And it always works! Jxo

  3. It looks great. For years now I want to make something like that for my living room. I have a board on pinterest with paintings from Kadinsky for inspiration. Just don't know whenever I will decide to start !!!!

  4. Your wall art is awesome and inspiring. Great job!

  5. Boom! Art! It looks great and awesome photo. I've had this sort of thing on the bucketlist for ages. The frame somehow 'ups' the show for me.
