Here is a small art quilt featured in the December/January issue of Quilting Arts Magazine. The base fabric is Shibori hand dyed fabric. The gold pieces of fabric are hand dyed and then mono printed with acrylic paint. The photo is of my lovely daughter Amanda. I used Photoshop to manipulate the photo and add texture. It is transferred to the fabric with Lesley's Artist Transfer Paper. The brass buttons were a garage sale find. The finishing touch was beading to bring out the detail in my daughter's top.

The Westside Art Quilt Guild members are doing a 12" 12" monthly challenge. Each month we are creating a 12" x 12" art quilt based on a word. This is the first in my challenge series based on the word fly. The fabric is a ice dye. The feather is is done with free motion machine embroidery. I added some fabric paint to the feather to give it some dimension. At the tip of the the background swirls is a tiny hand sewn pearl bead.
