Theo's quilt

I'm finally happy with Theo's quilt that I posted about last week. I'll show you how I got from eh to ooooh!

Not thrilled about how the colors play together but it's pieced so no going back.

 
So I added big hearts and his name using a buttery soft suede and quilted the heck out it and washed it so it got all crinkly, soft and snugly. But the suede got all puffy.
 

So back for more quilting - I love my sweet 16, it makes quilting a joy :-)
 

Hurrah! Now I like it and will be proud to give it to Theo's mom. It's 36" x 48" bigger than a baby quilt so I'll tell her to put it away till he gets bigger.
 
 
With all this non art quilting, I needed my art fix so I went looking on the web and came across the work of Marie Bergsted

Look at all those buttons! Pretty cool, huh?

Would you ever try something like this?

  2. Those big letters on the quilt made all the difference. The buttons sculptures are amazing! Thanks for giving us the link.
