Art Quilt finished!

I finally finished the art quilt!
I have been very busy because my 2 younger daughters started homeschooling and piano lessons so by the end of the day I was so tired I couldn't stay up to paint.
Today my sweet husband told me to paint as much as I want while he takes care of the girls.
So here it is, designed by Jo James from "The Cart Before The Horse". Stitched, painted and embellished by me.

My favorite girl is the Little riding hood.Jo's antiquing process is different than mine and I was freaking out while antiquing thinking I was going to ruin the painting.
I love the whole process, now I have a greater appreciation of Jo's work.
Jo, thank you so much for sharing your knowledge!

These quilts are gorgeous and you did such a great job with yours!! My older girl started piano recently. I'll be interested to see if you blog about the lessons.
