Artist’s Statement: The inspiration for this quilt design is Art Deco era theatre signs. The 34 square-in-square blocks represent lights surrounding the sign. I love the subtle effect of the metallic fabric and the juxtaposition of the Art Deco piecing design with the fussy-cut steampunk-ish Eiffel Tower and balloons.
