Mixed Media Quilt at The City Quilter: Part Two!

In My Heart

This is one of my very favorite mini quilts that I've made.

InMyHeart-sm
It's called "In My Heart" and features six needle felted hearts decorated with book page words.  I'm a big fan of the heart as a symbol.  A lot of my work has hearts in it.  And almost everything I make is memory or personal journey based.  This quilt is about all the different things I was feeling in my heart on the day that I made it.  In that sense, it's kind of a scrapbook page.  A moment in time captured.  Take a closer look:

The background of the quilt is canvas, which I patterned and painted.

After I painted this canvas up I sort of didn't want to use it because I just loved the way it looked!  But then I reminded myself that using it in a finished piece of art is much better than just having it tucked away in my stash!  I am so very guilty of hoarding things I love instead of using them.  So, so silly.  I often have to remind myself that I will feel more inspired and create lovelier things if I use my very favorite things for creating!

Thanks for stopping by!
