My garment sewing mojo has taken a little hiatus. Instead, I’ve been reading and day dreaming about a host of other creative endeavors to get stuck into.
I am not a quilter, but I will be making my own version of this art quilt.
It’s Frida. So, obviously, I love it.
I stumbled across it at the perfect time: while focused on projects/additions to bring color to my bland home.
I can’t wait to see them in person!

This quilt is so cool! I get why you want to make one yourself!
Have you ever checked out Faith Ringgold’s artwork? She makes story quilts and this Frida quilt reminds me of her work. I’ve always been interested in Ringgold’s work and even made my own ‘story quilt’ waaaaay back in the day in high school.
YES!! I love Faith Ringgold’s work! It’s amazing what she can do!
MAKE ME ONE. Jk. Not really. That fabric is killer. Where’d you get it??!?
I ordered the center panel from an etsy seller: https://www.etsy.com/transaction/210349640
And the coordinating fabrics from Fabric.com: https://www.fabric.com/buy/0330956/folklorico-gotas-de-amor-royal
I got some of those pieces to make something similar. I am not really much of a quilter either, but I just love this collection.
hooray! can’t wait to see what you do. it’s not as difficult as you might think. :o)
This is so cool!!! I’m so excited to see your version!
Gorgeous, love that quilt!
Hi there! I realize this is an old thread, however I’m hoping you’re still around! Can you please give me the names of each fabric you ordered for this quilt?! I would be forever grateful. Thank you!
