Cortona

Number 12, Cortona.  Cortona is the town in Tuscany on the outskirts of which Frances Mayes lived at Bramasole, the estate she wrote about in Under the Tuscan Sun and Bella Tuscany.  The image on this quilt is a view up from the plaza in the center of town.



I'm just running off to my "monthly" Art Quilt Group, our first meeting since June, I think.  I have more to show and tell than I thought I would.

I like this one very much. You and Frances: "spinning" your Italy experiences! I heard her on KQED many years ago, probably just after her first book came out. She was teaching at SF State--may still be...I only read the first book. I bet she'd like to have one or two of these quilts!

I found her blog--she's not on FB except via fan-made pages--and sent her a link to this quilt. I'm seeing your quilt in her collection!

I like the colours and placement of background fabrics to go with the image.
