Recently I shared with you about ACEO's (Art Cards and Originals). They are tiny, 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" "trading cards" for artists. I saw a few quilters were making them, and I decided to try it myself. I'm hooked! They are so much fun to make. Here's what I've made so far.
Love Fan is the first ACEO I made. I fused all the pieces onto the sweet background fabric and did a tiny zig-zag stitch around the edges. I love those tiny zig-zags! Then I sandwiched the layers together, quilted around the edges, and quilted one vertical line and one horizontal line across the front. Fun and done!
ACEO #2, Oak Leaf Reel. This one was a little difficult with the tiny pink wreath, but I think it came out nicely. The back of each ACEO is signed, dated, numbered, and printed with the name of the design. I called this one Oak Leaf Reel because the Oak Leaves look like they are dancing to me.
Beryl's Tulip Basket was so named because I stitched it during the down-pouring deluge of rain we received from the remnants of Tropical Storm Beryl. I adore the artsy way these tulips came out.
Sunbonnet Summer is a sleepy little Sunbonnet Sue, napping in the heat of the summer. It has been a sunbonnet summer here this week, hot, hot, hot!
Until next time...please visit the Curlicue Creations Shop...and have a super day!
