Infinite Love


Infinite Love is a very small art quilt that I stitched, using the hybrid beadweaving/bead embroidery motif method that I developed for my newest e-book, Bored By Back Stitch.  The beaded motifs look like flowers, sea life, or just geometric designs, depending upon the stitches chosen.  For the piece above, I used the embroidered versions of the Russian spiral and the African helix (shown below).  I used buttons instead of cabochons for the centers.  More information on the stitching can be found at the link above.

I really love this itty bitty quilt, it seems to draw me into a path that I very much want to travel.

June, thank you! That's so sweet! I did think about pathways a LOT while I was stitching this up.

Cyndi, what a gorgeous little art quilt!!! I love the shape, and I love the texture that the beads create.

I can feel an obsession with tiny art quilts starting in my little brain. I was wondering, do you have any posts on making little quilts/displaying them that you could recommend?

Cyndi L said...

I have three suggestions, I guess...my Turtle Fabrics cover the beading, Fall Migration covers piecing together a small quilt, and Orbital Flow focuses on the quilting part.

Awesome! Thank you! <3

What great detail. You did a good job with this one, Cyndi!

I keep thinking you must have run out of bead embroidery/weaving techniques, Cyndi.

And then you stun us with something totally new!

I love the little art quilt.
