Mini Art Quilt

This mini art quilt is made by me for a swap on swap-bot - The swap was that you send you pic to the person and they make something out of it :) - My partner sent me picture of her pet turtle Herman, so i turned it into a mini art quilt, i'm very happy with the way it turned out, and my first go at stippling free hand. I really hope she likes it.

I really do enjoy sewing these mini art quilt, and will be making more.
