When this blog first began, it featured all things quilty and was titled Art From The Heart. Years go by, interests morph, horizons expand, and all of a sudden you realize you are a quilter, yes...but also a spinner, weaver, knitter, crocheter, mixed media, fiber artist. The art is still from the heart, but the new name reflects my excitement with all things fiber! It's Fantabulous!
Technically, this butterfly is a quilt...three layers, fabric/batting/fabric. Free motion embroidered colors on top of a cheery yellow commercial fabric. I stitched pipe cleaners to the underside of the wings, so this butterfly is pose-able! I attached it to the top of one of my wild flower quilts. The quilt was already 'over the top' so why not send it soaring! :?}
