Bremen Town Musicians

This quilt is my artistic take on the Grimm Fairytales story, "Town Musicians of Bremen". This fairytale was my favorite as a kid. Mom would read stories to my sister and me before bed every night, and we would ask her to read "Bremen Town Musicians" — that's what we called it, even though the actual title is a bit different — again and again. We loved how the animals "win" and scared the thieves away from the house. Animals are real-life underdogs, but in this story, they definitely came out on top.

I used up to two layers of white tulle to create the illusion of glass in the windows. And I talk more in-depth about the color choices that went into this quilt design in in this blog post
