Sew Inspired

It's been awhile since I've done any stitching. I forgot how relaxing it could be. It still is my overall favorite crafty treat to make. Here are two altered art quilts I created using fabric prints of my original paintings. They are both completely hand stitched.

The first quiltie is a bookmark (SOLD) I created in a crazy quilt style. It measures 2.25" X 6" (Not including decorative yarn). I used multiple fabrics, felt, crocheted flowers and sequins.

The second quiltie is an ACEO (Art Cards, Editions & Originals). For those of you that don't know, I began sharing my art in 2005 on ebay in ACEO format. The ACEO size is 2.5" X 3.5".

This mini art quilt was created using burlap, felt, sequins & beads.

You can find more info on this ACEO quiltie up for auction now on ebay.

Happy Tuesday to you all!
