My mini-Andrae

Created in Irmo, SC for Project Quilting Season 3 - Challenge 1 Architectural Elements. I was inspired by this Chapel in Villeaceron www.pleatfarm.com/2010/07/29/chapel-in-villeaceron-by-s-m..., in particular the image of the light coming in the window and how it created varying levels and depths of shadows. So for my mini (sized 13" x 15") I tried to re-create the idea of the window of light and shadows. Once I had it pieced together, I wanted the quilting to play on the idea of light and kind of "sparkle"...and that's where I went completely Andrae (Season 2 of Project Runway) and let the idea with the quilting completely carry me away!...this is also my first attempt at FMQ...and I really love the overall finished product. I pulled all fabric from my stash and scrap pile, spent $2.77 for the quilting thread.
