Village Churches

I love old world architecture and  was toying with the idea of a collage-style quilt when a piece of art caught my attention.  I loved everything about  this collage of old churches from the variation of church styles to the colors to the hint of a story using human figures. The creator of the original artwork was Gaynor Chapman, a British artist, illustrator and teacher, commissioned to design posters for London Underground.  This quilt is based on her 1962 poster and is used by permission.  Village Churches by Gaynor Chapman from the London Transport Museum Collection © Transport For London
This is a first for me--recreating an artist's work in fabric.  It was a challenging and satisfying adventure. Here's a close up of one of the figures.
