Art Quilt "Lime and Grape"

I took a wonderful class from some local quilt teachers today. It was a day filled with creative inspirations and lots of sewing! I learned curved piecing, Angelina film, fabric glitter, yarn binding, and so much more!
I created this bright fun art quilt as a Christmas gift for my cousin LeAnn. I call it "Lime and Grape"
Lime and Grape
Here is a close up of one of the Angelina film pieces that I put over a circle. I trapped some sequins in it. This stuff rocks and I must get some now!
Angelina Film
I created a heart from a lime green zipper to add as a focal point. I just glued it on. I love how it looks against the deep grape circle.
Zipper Heart
I made a lime green patch and stamped the word love on it in purple ink. I added a touch of purple glitter and surrounded it in the chenille by the inch. That stuff rocks too. Another must have.
Love Patch
I quilted the thing with squiggly circles around the circles. I wanted it to look scribble like. I'm so happy with how it turned out and can't wait to make another using all of the great techniques I learned.

I love that purple and green batik!
And let's be honest, the entire thing is gorgeous!

LOVE! So many interesting and fun elements without being fussy. The zipper heart is great, but the chenille oval is my fave part.

Hi Deana,
What a great time we had that day creating! Your piece turned out FABULOUS! I hope we can come to Williston and do another class.
