Kandinsky Revisited: Inspiration for a new art quilt



When I was an art student, I became fascinated by the art of  Wassily Kandinsky. I loved his playfulness with shapes and colour. I also saw that his style would translate very well into quilt applique and created this art quilt below.

I've recently been wanting 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 wassily kandinsky.net where you'll find a catalogue of Kandinsky's artwork.

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

Update:  July 07, 2021. The Kandinsky patterns by Patricia Bravo are no longer available.
