If you've ever been to Miami, you've definitely seen the works of Romero Britto.
Beginning in the airport itself, with luggage on display.
Britto is a self-taught artist from Brazil who came to Miami in 1988. Now, he's internationally known and has work in many of the modern cities throughout the world.
Driving down 1-95 the other day, headed toward University of Miami, I saw this new addition on an older building. Gives it a nice splash of color, no?
You can find these images around South Beach, Miami.
And don't forget the Dolphin's Stadium!
Really, his work is everywhere. So, how could I not be inspired?
It's like a quilt looking right at me!
So I have used this inspiration and have made my mini quilt for the Modern Mini Quilt Challenge over at Ellison Lane Quilts.
And....how about a QAL?! This is a very easy project. It's great to do with a child. Let them draw the design and then I'll teach you how to prepare it for quilting! So, what do you think?
Grab a button and spread the word. I'll start posting tutorials soon!
