Art Quilts are on my mind!!

I have finished up this art quilt that I showed you earlier as a WIP. Not sure why the one closeup looks gray but believe me it is not. This is all done in neutrals.
I started another art quilt last night which is still a WIP. I plan to add more goodies to it. I am using things that I dyed myself. The base is wool felt with a piece of muslin at the to (the marking on the muslin was caused by salt on it while it was drying, don't ya love it???) , the the print is layered over some net and a piece of gauze. I layered some purchased fabrics in spots as well.  
I stamped the word on the fabric and purposely didn't make it real clear I added some embroidery stitches to hold all of it in place. Plus a piece of hand dyed lace. I think it needs some buttons/beads and maybe some ribbon. I will continue to work on this and share when it is done. I think a pink on is next but Hubby and I are planning a trip North to see family on Sun so I don't think I will get much creating done for the next couple weeks.
Have a blessed and creative week. Hoping to share family pictures next week.
