Wind Moon Sun

61” x 48”

A famous regional artist by the name of Ivey Hayes contacted me and requested that I recreate some of his paintings into quilted wall hangings. He had been told that I could recreate “anything”. I was up to a challenge, so I readily agreed to take on this task. He requested that they be at least 3 by 5 feet. Ivey was hoping to have a lot of women “knit” his images into quilts. He realized that not many quilters are capable to recreated paintings into exact likenesses.

The second painting I chose to recreate is Wind Moon Sun. I just loved the vibrant colors Ivey used!

This quilt is completely pieced. The biggest challenge of all was finding every cut of fabric to match the artworks colors. I use purchased quilting cottons exclusively.

I was honored to have the Schweinfurth Memorial Art Center , Auburn , N.Y. display this quilt in Quilts=Art=Quilts.
