heartfelt art

The mini-quilts we're featuring today are works of art - and heart. The delicate appliqued hearts and stitchery truly convey a feeling of love. We'd love to start our own collection (wouldn't you?)

My heart overflows, by Terri Stegmiller . This piece can be seen here.

Red felt love, by Nikki Wheeler. The beading and embellishments on this piece make it a standout. Also, see Nikki's shop here.

ArtFabrik has curated one of the best collections of mini-quilts we've seen. The Keiko & Friends exhibit, which was originally hosted by the Fine Line Creative Art Center in St. Charles, IL, featured small works by over 50 international quilt artists. Two of our favorites are shown below:

Pear of Hearts, by Dianne Vottero Dockery. In this gorgeous fabric collage, the artist has achieved a painterly effect.

Looking deep into your heart, by Linda McCurry. We particularly love the gold elements and the design of the quilting, which outlines the heart.
