Today I'm ready to share the finished art quilt with you. I created a separate slightly larger quilt, on which I mounted the 'quiltlet'. I then added a few little elements to each side, which I fused in place and then used hand stitch to embellish them further. A bit of hand stitch was also added to the top left and bottom right corners and then button stitch around the edges to create a binding.
I'm really happy with how it turned out, and I must say I love the way the initial piece of hand dyed fabric informed my choices for the background colours. I don't think I would have thought of using that rusty tan colour with purple, but I really love how it all works together.
Thanks so much for visiting today. It's always such an honour to have you visit, and I love reading your comments!
