I just completed this mini art quilt for the lovely sheepBlue in the IYP Swap: Round 23.  She requested an art quilt for her wall of Craftster-made art, but left the subject up to me.  While digging through the scrap bins at work (I run a costume shop at a university), I found some great burnout velvet fabrics that I knew I wanted to use.  Added to that some silk dupioni planets, sheer metallic mesh, sequin trim, lace, beads, and a lot of rayon embroidery thread, and you have the solar system!



Sun was created with layers of metallic mesh, primitive pleated silk organza, and some metallic spandex, covered with free-motion embroidery and gold beads.




Saturn is made of a gold and pink silk dupioni that we used on stage in Dangerous Liaisons this year, and lots of AB glass beads.


Earth was made of cotton, and free motion embroidered.

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!
