From Lisa Congdon:
Friends, I’m so excited to let you know that one of my paintings has been turned into a quilt pattern — that you can purchase! I’ll get to that in a moment, but first: the story behind the quilt.
Some of you may remember that last year, I was a judge for the 2016 QuiltCon. QuiltCon is a competition of modern quilts. You can read more about it here. Last January (so about a year ago), I traveled to Los Angeles for the judging. I was joined by two master quilters. Long story short, looking at hundreds of quilts that week inspired me endlessly. I wrote about the experience here.
One of the pieces I made when I returned from QuiltCon was this piece, which I called Los Angeles...
The organizers of QuiltCon asked me if they could turn this painting into a quilt design and I happily said yes! You can see the final quilt they made as a sample below (which at some point will become mine!)
