This little art quilt is what I made for the latest round of the 4 x 6" Art Swap.  All the edges are raw, which was new to me, and I found it extremely liberating!  My creativity flowed and it came together quickly since I wasn't finishing any seams; I just cut and positioned everything, then readjusted things to my liking, before sewing it all in place on the machine. I intentionally left a lot of long threads dangling!  I added a few hand-sewn details on the roof and the flowers.  There is a hanging sleeve on the back so it can be hung on the wall.  This was so much fun, I may have found my new style!

I love it! I'm a huge fan of raw edges (I can't be neat to save my life!). Lovely!
