More 3D Art Quilts

I thought I would show you another small 3D art quilt I created.   This piece is made using aluminum cans and a sink scrubber. 

I admit I was amazed at how easy my needle went through the aluminum.   I did use a very small needle  as the puncture marks don't disappear.   You want to make sure you know what you are planning to quilt before starting.  Although just having needle holes through a piece would make a great addition too. 

The sink scrubber was a fun addition as this stuff is just impossible to pull apart.   The pieces held their shape and stayed straight up after stitched down.

I am now officially a Course Instructor for Riley Blake fabrics!  My tutorial went up to make a funky scarf.  Check it out.

That is such an unusual embellishment! I like the look of the holes in the metal - and I went to see your scarf tutorial on the Riley Blake site. Congrats on being featured there!
