A Special Mini Quilt!

This mini quilt was inspired by Danita Art's Free Motion Quilting class on Crescendoh.  I had such a wonderful time taking this class...there was so much great information given by Danita.  Crescendoh is also a really neat place to visit and check out for anyone interested in art, crafting, and online classes.  http://blog.crescendoh.com/crescendoh/index.html

The face in this piece was created by Danita and came with a kit we received.  The rest is all me!


The background of the piece was handmade by collaging on top of muslin fabric.  Embellishments and free motion stiching were added to the piece and it was then sewed onto dyed felt.  Finally, ribbons and a bamboo hanger were added!!!  Stay tuned for more of the little treats....I've had lots of fun making them!

Thanks guys! Yes...workshops r great....and when you find a new addiction...also expensive! I bought a new sewing machine to be able to do this kind of work. The other one sounded like a child being beaten...screaming for me to STOP SEWING so many layers together!!!!!! The one I have now will go through 5 pair of denim...so I think I'm pretty safe. Gotta get back on the makin' wagon though. Stay tuned cause I'm all revved up and ready to create!!!!
