20 H x 61.5W You can click on the horizontal art quilt to see it larger. Right side portion actually zips off the larger portion of the art quilt. It could be hung both vertically and horizontally. Fabric collage on wool felt with metal embellishments, screen, a variety of fabrics...from cotton to silks. What we keep to remind us who we are. I also did some block printing with the red spirals. And then I got out the Shiva Paintsticks! Oh what fun using them in a non-traditional way by making portions of the art quilt look old and weathered. The metallic sticks have a magic all their own when drawn on fabrics with texture. There are words spelled out with letter beads, since that is sort of my trademark.
