Not sure what category to put this in. Let me know if I'm wrong i will move it. I concentrated mostly in the embroidering for this project.

I was partners with the lovely ladybugsandbumblebees. In the recent round of "the giant multithemed swap"... I knew i had to use the quote of "you can call me queen bee". It made me chuckle so i had to come up with something.
This is my first art quilt? Maybe not quite sure what makes an art quilt but i relied heavily on my embroidering skills.
The woman is one of my "manakinns" as they were dubbed way back in high school, ive been drawing them longer than i can remember. I drew her and the background in with inktense pencils, used some fabric for her dress and beads for all the little doodads.
This project took waaaaaay longer than expected but it was a labor of love. This is probably the first project in awhile that actually came out exactly how i imagined it (does anyone else have that problem too?).
This is around 30+ hours of work. Most was improvised and done "on the fly". As i do most of the time. But i was really pleased in the final product.
Enough jabber on to the photos...



I cant seem to find any of the detail shots i took but the swirls, colors of the bees, grass and even shimmer in the wings is all stitching.

I love that it is a fabric piece - at first I thought it was a canvas or drawing!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

I see why you were pleased with its outcome- this is remarkable! Love all of the texture you have with the beads, stitches, and fabric pieces, and the blanket stitched edge is a nice touch. LBABB must be tickled pink to own it!

Nice! From the thumbnail I was ready to just comment on what a cute art piece it was, the fact that it's an art quilt makes it that much more impressive! It's beautiful!
