Comments: This is a little crazy quilt heart experiment that I did with this project.

I found some fabric that I thought went well together. I had a special cigarette silk print lady that I wanted to use for this project so I wanted the fabric to go well with her colors. I needed something to put around the silk print, so found some tiny lace but it was white, so I dyed it green and then attached. I then added a few buttons.

I stitched a bird house with some climbing roses stitched with silk ribbons and added a bit of grass at the base.

I wanted a spider web with spiders, so added that at the bottom of the heart. Just above I have added a bit of lace with some pearls attached.

One of the seam treatment was made with silk ribbon roses ondulating up and down.

Stitched a bird flying in the direction of the bird house and attached both a metallic bird and dragonlady and I was done. Finished it as a heart.

If I were to do it again, I would finish it differently. Perhaps one day, I may undo that finishing and do a different one. Will see (smiling)
