Mini art quilt

Fabric art collage

I painted my original design on muslin. I added fabrics, and machine stitched around the pieces. It is stuffed with batting.
It's for sale in my etsy shop. (link to the right in the sidebar).

Textile art collage

This piece measures about 8 x 8 inches. It is created on heavy fabric canvas. The wording is fabric. One of the trees is made out of a vintage fabric yo yo. I painted the houses on muslin fabric, then machine stitched them onto heavy canvas. I gessoed the fabric before I painted it to give it a stiffness. After I finished sewing the pieces I painted the trees over the top with acrylic paint.

There once was a king...

who thought he owned every ones' heart. He felt if he hung unto his own long enough, no one else could have it...
