Tiny quiltlet is headed for Philadelphia to be a part of the SAQA Spotlight Auction. Just another donation to help with the greater art quilt cause!! It was fun to make but I was a little constrained because they are showing them off in mats that cover the outer inch and a half of the quilt all the way around.... that's a lot of the quilt since its only 6 x 8 ". Oh well!
That's why the design is concentrated in the middle, the fish and the top of the leaf are basically all you will see. The fish are outlined in cool metallic gold thread that meakes them nice and sparkly.
I have always been an artist and with art quilts I have found a way to combine my two loves of painting and textiles.
