Three Black Blobs

This is so exciting; my first quilt with 12 By The Dozen. Thank you so much for inviting me.


Three Black Blobs


I am very pleased with it, not being very keen on his very colourful paintings, it has been much fun to make this into mostly grey and monochrome quilt. 

I tweaked a photo of the original painting in Photoshop then removed the colours. Then I pieced and quilted the background, and after some hand stitching, fused the flowers and added machine stitches in black. 

I had it in my head for a long time, but true to form started too late, finishing on Tuesday afternoon - long before midnight though...........

Then it turned out I had it problems, thanks for the help Hilary!

Based on the painting (745) Blobs Grow in Beloved Gardens, 1975

  2. I like the simplicity of design and choice of colours which are the antithesis of Hundertwasser!

  7. What an entrance! I joked that I would produce a black and white piece in antithesis of all that vibrant colour, but you went one better. I love your interpretation. Masterful.

  8. I really like your design and all the elements work together so beautifully - well done on showing his style in a completely different colourway.

  9. Hi Mai-Britt, great opening to the group. I like the way your very few colours do match up with the original flowers.

  11. Welcome to the group Mai-Britt. I love your interpretation: it's yours but it's Hundertwasser's as well.
