Finally, back to some art work!

It's been a busy few weeks so I am glad I finished my MACRO challenge piece several weeks ago!  Today is the reveal day!  So take a peak at Art Quilts Around the World to see all the unique art works!

This is my contribution!  It's a sunflower (in case you don't recognize it!) which was hand beaded (2 beads at a time!), background and sunflower petal fabric was created using Setacolor paint then fused/stitched, silk  leaves were stitched and background free motion quilted.
UGH...colors look really bad in this next closeup...the beads are really brighter....


And one more closeup.....
I got to pick our next challenge and I decided on Art Nouveau!  It's not due until January 31, 2014 so I should have time in between making my fiber Valentine cards!  Yikes!  Can't believe it's November 30th already!!  Where does the time go!!!!

The beading is just stunning on this piece! And your background quilting adds a lot of interest. Just beautiful!

Stunning Sunflower. Your work is true art with so many elements of stitching, beading, textures of fabrics and dimensions of colors and quilting. Art Nouveau is absolutely a favorite of mine and whatever you do will be amazing. December Delights Dear...
