Kandinsky Revisited: Inspiration for a new art quilt

When I first started my blog a couple of years ago, I posted an art quilt I created that was inspired by the art of Wassily Kandinsky. Get the post HERE.

I've recently been itchin' to try something different, so I thought I'd revisit my Kandinsky phase; I'm glad I did. Recently, I found other quilts inspired by Kandinsky and discovered Kandinsky quilts are quite a thing in the quilting world.

Below are a few examples of the Kandinsky quilts I found recently. You can see that Kandinsky's art translates extremely well into art quilts. If you want some inspiration for your own Kandinsky quilt, check out artsy.net where you'll find a catalogue of Kandinsky's artwork.

This Kandinsky quilt pattern is one of three patterns by quilter and fabric designer Patricia Bravo.
