    Glad you are on the mend, and feeling better. Your art quilt is fabulous! I'm another who'd like to know what you used to paint~~~

    Wow! I don't really understand how you did it, but it's beautiful! A serious art piece.

    By "painting" do you mean all the colors are painted on? And that you began by just quilting shapes, which you then defined with paint? I especially love the little tendrils which resemble ears of corn. It's exquisite.

    It is marvelous. The part on the left reminds me of Indian corn, the center, of summer sweet corn and the right of tomato salsa. I'd call it a picnic. Wonderful work.

    yes, I doodle-quilted my way around the quilt sandwich and then used inktense pencils and blocks to paint it. The back is what it looked like before painting (only in reverse). After I paintedone layer, I went back and shaded some places and added another layer in a couple areas to intensify the color. After all the coloring was done I quilted the leaves , feather and echos around the feather using glitter thread, but it doesn’t show up in the photo.

    Thanks for explaining how you did this! I showed the photo to my son yesterday, who has just become interested in leather work and is creating his own designs and then making them: little wallets, pouches, coin purses, other "container" items, without patterns other than those in his head. Not at all the same as what you're doing, but I wanted to show him your incredible "quilt doodle" design and art. He was wowed.

    Very pretty!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.
