Arizona Starry Night is Alicia’s interpretation of Van Gogh’s Starry Night (one of her favorite paintings). Alicia’s piece is not meant to copy his work, but capture the feeling, making it instantly recognizable, but different.
This project took roughly three months to complete. Placing the pieces took about a month. Alicia glued each piece of the sky lightly to a background, then added mountains and cacti. The entire piece was covered with tulle before quilting. Using Bottom Line polyester thread on the bobbin and Highlights in the top, Alicia used quilting to add texture to her naturescape.
Her beautiful quilt earned Alicia an Honorable Mention in Art-Naturescapes at the Houston show last year. We appreciate Alicia for letting us to share her work with you and hope you’ve felt inspired as we have!
