    My Matisse Quilt

    This was my first attempt at applique. Everything is hand done. Hand pieced, hand embroidered, hand appliqued, hand batiked, and hand quilted. I gave it to my 82-year-old mother, who can't sew a stitch. I think she likes it.

    It's a beautiful work of art and yes, very reminiscent of Matisse! Nice job!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    wondering what you mean by ' hand batiked' ? did you use a wax pot & dye/batik your own fabrics for it? or use plates? it is beautiful- just wondering what 'batik-ing process you used???

    Your quilt is beautiful. I love the colors and the movement in it. You could almost think those are birds or angels.
