A Little Art Quilt


I had been experimenting around with little scrap triangles that were emerging from doing my Bestie QAL using the 'Swoon' pattern.  
When I make little quilts, it is nice if I can combine them with another purpose.   The Quilting Arts magazine has another challenge going on right now called 'Text Me'.  

I made this little quilt using my hand dyed fabric, ric rac and the left over triangles.

I did recut the triangles to make them fit a little better into each section.   I could see a larger quilt with perhaps some different ways to fill the shapes created by the ric rac.


I do adore working with ric rac!   The colours and different sizes and all the wonderful ways you can add it to your quilts.

Very creative and I love your words! I was just looking at an array of rickrack in the sewing store the other day....I may just be going back! :)

That is the coolest way to use rickrack...I really love it, and love your words, too. Great way to interpret "text me."

Enjoyed looking through your gallery. The First Modern Quilt 2013 really takes my eye.
