Whenever you write a tutorial you're casting your bread upon the waters, with faith that somebody out there will read it and with any luck, find it interesting and/or helpful. But in most cases, if that happens, you don't know it. So it's always a pleasure to learn that somebody did read and enjoy.
Last week I was delighted to hear from Regine Daldrup, a German quilter. She said that this spring she visited the Lyonel Feininger Museum in Quedlinburg, near Leipzig. "I love his kind of painting very much," she wrote. "Thinking about how to quilt in a similar way I remembered your fine lines and now I want to show you my quilt ala Feininger."
Here's Regine's quilt:
I think Regine did a great job of capturing the famous artist's feeling while still producing a work that is very much a quilt. I'm happy to have provided a bit of her inspiration.
