Art Quilts

I created these two non-traditional small art quilts for the fall lineup of classes at the LBH.  They are each approximately 9"x11" on a canvas foundation.  They are displayed back-to-back on a neat wooden display stand, but are two totally separate hangings.  The idea is that you could change them out for each season or holiday.  Both quilts are very textural, combining fabrics and papers with many different types of embellishments. And for non-sewers, there is very little sewing!

The first quilt is Halloween-themed. Just love that spider and web!

And this one is for fall with a variety of leaves and even a real acorn.

Sorry for the not-so-perfect photos!  If you're local and interested in these classes, call The Little Blue House at 817-431-7930 to sign up while there are still spaces available.
