I recently visited the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and was greeted by an incredible quilt opportunity before I even went inside!
Not only was the architecture inspiring, but so was the nature:
I was there to see the Foot In The Door exhibit (FITD), which happens every ten years and I was fortunate to be a part of this year! FITD is an exhibit in which ANYONE can bring in art to be displayed at the museum, provided it fit into a 12" x 12" box!
There was a little bit of time to wander the rest of the museum, so I decided to grab some photos of pieces throughout the exhibits that were fiber:
There were also plenty of pieces there that were quiltspirations from a variety of mediums:
My favorite piece at the museum is this one:
I decided to take this piece, and use it as inspiration for a small wall hanging project. Check it out!
We have added a Tutorial section to the blog, please check the top of the blog for the "Tutorials" button for info on how to make this project!
Have you interpreted a photo of something, and put it into fiber form? We'd love to show it here on The Fiber Nation! Just send the original photo and a photo of your piece along with your name and we'll try and do a special posting on readers "quiltspiration" pieces! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
