View of Vernazza


Vernazza, Italy - This is another view for the source of my "Italian Apartments" courtesy of my daughter, Jessica, who asked the newlyweds where they had taken the picture of the apartments in Italy. 

I had a lightbulb moment Saturday.  I was working on my "Italian Apartments", now renamed "View of Vernazza", when I recalled a comment someone made on my piece by 'either name".  She said, "those are interesting colors you chose for this piece".  Well, it dawned on me that she had not seen my inspiration photo taken by my nephew Mike and his bride Carleen when they were on their honeymoon in Italy.  The buildings are actually pretty close to the colors I picked for them.  Please note the pink, terra cotta, dirty lime and orange in the photo above.  I'd love to go there, wouldn't you?   Ouuuuuu, the colors.....ahhhh...

That is a phenomenal picture with all that color. Certainly something to get inspired over. I need to look this town up! I'm glad you posted the inspiration picture so we can what laid the foundation for your quilt.

What a beautiful photograph! Just introducing myself. I came to your blog via Barbara Strobel Lardon's blog and am enjoying looking at your work.

Those wonderful colors remind me that not every house is white or beige! Thanks:)

What a beautiful photo!! Even if you had not mathced the actual color of the actitecture it would have been fun!! Some people can't think outside the box. Can't wait to see the finished quilt.

I love that photo, Pat. I just started reading your blog, saw it at the SAQA group. I've been using images of my trip to Italy in 2007 quite a bit in my quilting recently. Check out my blog if you're interested -- http://constancerosedesigns.blogspot.com.
Take care,

I saw this photo on Pinterest. I love this photo! I've been there, and got a painting and just love it. Any chance I can get the digital image of the photo, would love to be able to blow it up and frame it. Please let me know either way.

Alexa/Lien,

I don't know where this photo came from, sorry to say. My daughter found it on the internet somewhere. I tried to do a new search for the photo but was unsuccessful. So sorry. Pat
