Blogger's Quilt Festival - Art Quilt Category



I hope I'm not being presumptuous by entering this in the "Art Quilt" category of this year's spring edition of the Blogger's Quilt Festival.  I'm calling it art because it was designed to be hung on the wall - how's that for literal for you!?

I actually started this little quilt with an eye to putting something new in last year's spring Festival, but when I realized that the hand stitching I wanted to do would have taken too long, I entered her sister quilt instead.  This one was finished up in a whirlwind of WIP finishing this past January, but now I finally have her mounted on a frame and up on the wall.

Here's some pictures I took along the way...







I'm really happy with how it turned out.  It took a long time, but I just love the effect of all those tiny stitches!  Ideas for other small stitchy quilts are already floating around in my head…



Thanks for stopping by!

  3. It's absolutely art! No presumption at all. :-)

    I loved the sister quilt but I love this one even better. The linen and the stitching add such dimension and the slight slant and irregular sides give it interest and drama. Adding it to inspiration folder.
