My friend is making a quilt for an auction at a marine educators conference in June and she was looking for ideas and looked at my Tidepool quilt...
She asked me to make her some shells that would be washable (the above is an art quilt and they are colored pencil tinted so I don't consider them wash proof) so I painted hers with fabric paints.
So these are ready to go squares with little works of art! She has great plans and these plans include baby sea turtles... can't wait to see it!
I have always been an artist and with art quilts I have found a way to combine my two loves of painting and textiles.
