What materials did you use? Batik fabrics, quilt batting, fusible web, embroidery threads

What are you most proud of? I started and finished this art quilt in less than 2.5 days, and it wasn't the only thing I worked on during that time period.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The embroidery work through fused fabric is tough on the fingers...I wish I knew how to use a thimble better. Now, I'll need to give my thumb on my right hand a rest...

Beautiful! Love the fabrics you used!

Thank-you. The sky/clouds one is a Debbie Mumm for SSI, and I can't even remember where I bought it.

The stitchery is fantastic! I especially like those on the front door and the flowers. Thanks for sharing!

I'd like to take credit for the front door and flower stitchery - but there is a gold line pattern in the batik fabric that I selected, and so it worked well in the door and flowers to add some extra detail! Laura, I love your technique and teaching style - it's really inspired me to try some more fused art quilts.

I like how atmospheric this is! I particularly like your embroidery on the house and the tree top, and how they both stand out against the sky. I'm sad to hear the embroidery through fused fabric is so tough on the fingers thought :-( You did a great job of it even so!
