"Mineral Art"

"Mineral Art" - The pattern is from the Better Homes and Gardens - Quilt Lovers Favorites - Volume 4. I adapted a "change" in the pattern by copying "mineral art" pictures created by my brother for a quilt for him. My brother is a wonderful artist and draws mineral art from stones that he finds in mines. I scanned his drawings, printed them on muslin and "inserted" them in the center of each square. To make this quilt "shine" like a gem stone, I used fairy-frost material within each square to match the center stone. It was truly a "treasure"!
