Mixed Media Monday - Lace

This week on Mixed Media Monday Anni is challenging us with the prompt "lace". Well, that was all the excuse I needed to make my first art quilt, and of course, it had to be heavily encrusted with luscious laces and lace motifs. The image of the woman is an image transfer onto fabric. The quilt is approx. 20 x 25 cm or 8 x 10 inches. I now have to find something to hang it on. Thanks for the fun challenge, Anni!
