    UFO art quilt finished

    Hey all,
    Here's a UFO art quilt I finally finished. I doodle quilted, then painted what I'd doodled. There's some glitter thread in it in places, but it doesn't show in the pic, alas... Measures about 19" x 22". First pic is front, second is back.

    Thanks for looking,
    Rob

    Thanks, SusieQOH! Definitely better, still not lifting over 20 pounds and been told I can't ride my horse for another 2 to 3 weeks, but other than that I seem to be back to normal--but without the gallbladder pain Yay!

    Rob, that's a beautiful art quilt. I can see that a lot of time & energy went into making it & it turned out gorgeous. Your free motion "doodling" is awesome!!! Glad you are on the mend & on your way back to normal.

    That is quite striking Rob. Like Watson, I am very curious as to what you used to paint it and how. I've been itching to try the inktense pencils I bought over a year ago. (hmm probably closer to over two years ago!)

    Fantastic finish, Rob! Love all the zentangle-ish quilt-doodling and I'm as curious as the others about your fabric paint process? You truly are so very talented Glad to hear you're on the mend and free from the pain.

    That is so beautiful. You are a really accomplished artist. I sometimes think I shouldn't post my quilts on this forum, because They never compare to the amazing work artists like you do. Keep creating and keep posting. I admire your talent.

    Happy to hear that your recovery has gone well and that you are pain free. Your work is amazing...so much interest in your art project and your quilting is spectacular. I’m sure it feels great to have this one done.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Love your zentangle quilting. I, too, have Inktense pencils but have only used them on small embroidery projects.
    Is that what you used?
