Solitude Mini Art Quilt

She Embraces Solitude mini art quilt - 8" x 11"


Here's another mini quilt I made recently. I used some Dylusions ink spray on canvas fabric to get a mottled/dyed background. As is often the case when I'm just playing with supplies, I wasn't sure until after it dried where I was going with it. I used a Donna Downey stamp for the face and enhanced it with free motion quilting and black thread.



Then I used a matching blue thread to do a little enhancement quilting around the face and background. I felt the size of this quilt made it closer to the size of an art journal page, so as I often do in my journaling, I added a quote.


One of my favorite things to happen when making these quilts that outline a central figure or image is the quilting lines that show up on the back. 


It's like double the artwork for your effort! Thanks for stopping by.
