100 PC PUZZLE TIN MATTERHORN QUILT

$15.00

Puzzle featuring The Matterhorn Quilt, created in 1934 by Myrtle M. Fortner (American, 1880-1966). Fortner based this quilt on her pastel drawings inspired by postcards from her niece's trip to Switzerland. She sought out suitably colored fabrics from various sources over many years, dyeing them herself when necessary. The 9,135 three-quarter-inch squares combine physically and optically to create a picture of the mountain, lodge, trees, and stream. The lines formed by her quilting stitches act like brushstrokes to render and enhance forms while introducing a sense of movement.
