This is my first art quilt. I just started quilting this year and I am so proud of this one. I used a quote from a children's book called Stars by Mary Lyn Ray. There is over 750 yards of thread in this baby. Some of it is metallic so it shimmers as the light hits it. The beads are glass pearls. It was quite the learning experience I can't wait to start the next one!

So beautiful and flowing. The colors and the sweeping loops of the dandistars are lovely. Keep quilting! You earned the "art" in art quilt.

I loooove this!  I've done some simple baby quilting, but never art quilting.  This is gorgeous!
