Happy Alps by Enid Weichselbaum (Minnesota, U.S.A.)


Enid explains, "This piece was inspired by travel posters of the 1950's and 60's, with their bold colors, simple shapes, and stylized landscapes. The blue of the shadows in the snow creates depth. Tiny houses, cars, and skiers add more to the story. "


Enid used machine piecing, machine applique, painting, and machine-fused embellishments. Her materials for this charming original design include cotton fabrics, cotton batting, cotton/poly thread, and gold lamé.


Enid's use of bright, happy solid colors creates an enchanting sense of coziness and hominess amidst the snowy mountains. What a perfect place to spend Christmas vacation -- even if you don't ski and are perfectly happy (as we are) to sit by the fireplace and quilt !
