    First Art quilt

    A friend told me I should try quilt art so this is my first try
    The blue moon and egret are appliqué and fabric paint.
    The village is drawn in colored pencil and sparkle paints.
    I quilted it myself outlining the feathers on the bird around
    the moon and stipple quilted the remainder.

    It is stunning, one that I will probably never try. I hope you signed and dated it. Just think what people will say 50 or 100 years from now.

    Perfectly beautiful! I like your subject figures and the way you embellished them created beautiful enhancements. I hope you are encouraged to do some more art pieces.
