This is Amsterdam Alley: The Shortcut Between by Leslie T. Jenison. It measures 48" x 36" and the materials used include: silk, cotton, canvas, dye, paint, bamboo felt, both cotton and polyester thread, along with Mistyfuse fusible.  It is currently part of a private collection.

Artist Statement:

This quilt was inspired by a photograph I took during a trip to Amsterdam, Netherlands.  I felt it would be an interesting challenge to expand the borders of the image into a quilt.  The dye-painted graffiti is based on the colorful images I was exposed to in other parts of the city.
