A Small ArtQuilt

Just thought I would post a pic of a small artquilt that I am working on. The main work is finished now all I need to do is the embellishments on this one and put the backing and binding on. I am very pleased so far with the turnout of this little quilt. I will definately be making more of these. And of course as you can see it is made out of batiks which are my favorite! Now to go digging around for the embellishments. Here are a couple of pics before the embellishments are in place.This pic is a little bit darker and shows the browns a little better. The colors are really deep and vibrant.
So far I really like how it is shaping up. Of course it will be much better with the embellishments! We spent the day with our middle daughter Bliss who turned 19 on Saturday. We went to a chinese restruant to eat and then to the movies. We had a lovely time and I will be doing her desert when she decides what she wants. All in all it was a great weekend. We did hit the thrift stores, and I found a wonderful peacock to add to my growing collection. Ok I don't know what bloggers problem is, but it will not let me put my photo of the peacock down here where it goes. So will leave it up top for now and move it later on.

Finally I was able to move this peacock pic down here where he belongs!

I signed up for the summer swap because of you! I will be lucky to make another quilt for someone who was as grateful as you are!
Your art quilt is stunning! I love the exotic feel, and all the color and texture. Gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous! Can't wait to see it embellished!

Thank you ladies for the nice comments on my quilt. I really appreciate it as it is always good to hear positive comments about our art.

Beena, I am so glad you are swapping again. I hope we both get wonderful swap partners again.

Wendy, I thought that I had your email address but, I cannot find it. I have the guidelines up for the Christmas stocking swap if you still want to participate in it. I have my email address up on my blog if you want to contact me. Lyn G
