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 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?
And then you stun us with something totally new!
I love the little art quilt.
