This picture hangs in my sewing room. It is called “Trees in Spain” by Madeline Thresh. I think she painted it in the 1960s. I loved it when I first saw it in her studio. She gave it to us and we had it hanging in the house for several years. One day she dropped by and took the painting back and “fixed” it. I didn’t like her changes, but she thought it looked better.

Elements in it might make an interesting quilt.

On the heart quilt project, I think I have found the solution. They tessellate almost the way I want them to. No "Y" seams either.

So glad your hearts have come together!
I thought the painting was a quilt until I read about it.
