Quilt as you go... again

A facebook-challenge  (post a picture of an artwork by an artist assigned to you) helped me discover this baby-quilt made by Sonia Delaunay. I love it! I knew some of her work, but not this. Look at the bright colors and shapes.

“About 1911 I had the idea of making for my son, who had just been born, a blanket composed of bits of fabric like those I had seen in the houses of Russian peasants. When it was finished, the arrangement of the pieces of material seemed to me to evoke cubist conceptions and we then tried to apply the same process to other objects and paintings.” – Sonia Delaunay

I got inspired and made another quilt-as-you-go pillow. Only solids this time. It does not even come close to what Sona Delaunay accomplished in her quilt, but I still like it...

It does look quite nice on my couch, don't you think?
