Baby Art Quilt

Baby art quilt (12W x 14H) for my niece. The original artwork is a watercolor of text and artwork that I designed and had copyrighted in 1988. It was transferred to fabric, fused with Mistyfuse and the other fabrics were added around it. All of the mother-of-pearl buttons were sewn on by hand. You can click on it to see it larger.

  4. This is the best art baby quilt I have ever seen. You are very talented. I think that this should become a new category in quilt/art quilt shows. I'm very impressed.

    I hope you'll consider creating more along this line and writing articles for magazines (and your blog). I do think you are on to something that could really change the quilting world, as we know it today.


    Thanks for sharing.
