Mini art quilts


I can show the mini art quilts in full now :-)  On the fishy one I've used organza ribbon to represent scales.  The picture looks a little fuzzy, this is due to the organza I've used on top of felt.  Just so you know the stitching on the seaweed is intentionally wonky - though I do wonky very well even when it's not intentional (but not quite this wonky) LOL
Translation should you need it (Elizabeth): wonky = not straight; lopsided; unsteady. ;-)

Wow, here I've been so busy I didn't even make it here when you posted this, and you even did a translation for my benefit. I understand wonky. That is most of MY work!!

That fish has so much detail, is incredible, and so imaginative. The way you represented the scales is simply brilliant. And your use of beads to simulate bubbles shows how clever your mind works.

Although my original "Wow" was for the fish, after carefully studying the butterfly and flowers, I was very impressed with how symmetrical the "spots" on the wings are. I'm amazed at your accuracy. I suspect you must have measured, something I really don't do with fabric. Great job on both.
