Style Imitating Art: Brummel street mural


This week’s Style Imitating Art inspiration piece is a street mural known as Brummel by the artist POSE, selected for SIA by Loop Looks. I immediately thought of this piece I made at a quilt retreat last year. Using the Crazy Mom Quilts tutorial, it was my first attempt at improv piecing with scraps. While I like what I made, I’m not interested in continuing with it enough to make into even a lap size quilt (so much work and time!), and I can say with confidence that I will never make a king size masterpiece like her Scrap Vortex quilt.


The piece has been on my design wall since I made it, waiting for me to figure out what to do with it. One possible plan is to turn it into an apron. I wear an apron every time I’m in the kitchen cooking, baking, or cleaning and I would definitely use another one in my collection. I didn’t get around to sewing the apron this week, so I mocked it up using safety pins and a length of ribbon as the waistband for my Domestic Style Imitating Art interpretation.

    Wow, this is so cool Xat! I love that pattern and I think that it goes perfectly with this SIA. And the fact that you made that makes it even cooler! 🙂

    Wonderful correlation of the Brummel POSE art to your creation. I can see it as an old/new juxtaposition on a wing chair, as a cover.

    […] Xat used this week’s art as the impetus to share an interesting hand-made piece. She wasn’t sure what to do with it but I personally like it as a skirt. You can find out more in her blog post. […]
