Art quilties....



What is a quiltie? It is a six" x 8" mini quilt with stuff on it....I was asked to join a new group for art quilts by Sanna http://sannasartmind.blogspot.com ...we are still looking for a few more people if anyone wants to give it a go...You pick a theme for people to work with and you swap with one person a month...It is an easy size to work with and at the end, you have these gorgeous fabric pieces to put together in a book or frame or whatever you choose. I am in the midst of a funk and that quilt (you know the one) is staring at me and I am choosing to ignore it...I decided to make little quilties...Just needed a change I guess...They are both radically different as you can see...The first one is my roller alien chick...Yep, that was a theme....aliens, circus, monsters etc.....the second one was vintage with purple on it somewhere. I just try to see how much stuff I can fit on one and move it around till' it looks right. I may make another tomorrow....

What a cool idea! Do you actually quilt on them? Or does it just look that way? However you do them, it looks great!

This is too funny. I was needing some inspiration for an art quiltie...so I googled it and clicked the first link it listed...up pops the Alien quiltie you made for me!!!! That was a surprize.

I had to laugh. She is soo cute!
