Mini Art Quilt



My first try at mini quilts [I've done samples of quilting, but never made any type of quilt], this is one of three. The other two can be seen on the hand embroidery network exhibition [link below right]. The flower was silk painted and applied to a painted and stamped [rolling stamp of course] cotton fabric. It was then hand stitched in different colours, shades and thicknesses of thread. The flower edges and petal edges were stitched together with the wadding and background fabric to quilt it. The quilt was finished with dyed binding and a backing fabric.
