Visiting our place of worship rejuvenates our spiritual self and keeps us focused on all that is good and important in our lives. The interior of the Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde in the city of Marseille, France is a visual feast. In the spring of 2015 I had the opportunity to tour this fabulous cathedral and was enthralled by the swirl of archways and colors achieved through the stonework. I felt as if I was surrounded by a patchwork quilt made of marble. This view I captured of the interior inspired me to create this piece as a reminder of my visit.
Custom designed cotton fabric, interfacing, fusible web, batting, thread, and colored pencils.
I edited my photo in Photoshop by cropping, giving it a 'painterly' look, and enhancing colors. I printed it to fabric and free motion stitched.
