Kaylene Maalste – Artist style #2

Inspiration – My second quilt was inspired by Franz Marc’s “Yellow Cow”. So i decided my cat would be yellow and active, and also placed in a landscape.

Method. Except for the “flowers” I selected colours for the background and cat from batik fabrics. These were hand appliqued on a plain cotton background. I decided that my cat would be a home playing amongst flowers. I rough cut the flowers from plain and patterned fabrics and hand embroidered these to the background.

    Your quilt is an explosion of colour ! Like the yellow cow of Franz Marc, the yellow cat in the middle of this colourful landscape is very present !

    I can see the way that your cat has taken the place of the cow, and it really looks as though it is toying with the flowers in its ‘nest’. Lovely colours and stitching. Well done

  9. I love this playful cat among the flowers. The link to the yellow cow is clear and the hand stitching really enhances the bright colours in the fabrics.

  10. A joyful, colorful and whimsical interpretation and composition. Great choices of fabrics, colors and stitching. Well done!

  11. A lovely use of color and interpretation of Marc’s style. I particularly like the field of circles the cat is posed in.

  12. This is a great interpretation of the yellow cow. I like the idea of changing it into a cat. Like cows are dancing when they first are outside, your cat is also dancing between the flowers.
