Ep. 19: Chantale’s hommage to Modigliani

What kind of quilt would you like to share with us?
The portrait of a woman with a child’s blanket.

Why and for whom did you make this quilt?
I made this quilt for a competition last year. The motto was “How would it look if your favorite artist had made patchwork?” My favorite artist is Modigliani.

When did you start and how long did it take to complete?
The sketch went relatively fast, the realization has taken more than 3 months.

What do you like most about this quilt?
I really like everything about it. If I had to sew the quilt again, I would align the background material in the vertical rather than the horizontal so that it reminds more of a fence.

What kind of materials did you use?
First of all cotton fabrics and relaxed linen to convey the impression of a real canvas as well as possible.

How long have you been patchwork?
Since 1984, that is 32 years.

What experience in time has touched you the most?
Mediating my passion for sewing to my students.

Do you have a good advice for beginners?
Use color palettes as inspiration and let your imagination flow!

Do you have a blog, Instagram or Pinterest?
Yes, I’m on Instagram.
