Love Is...Quiltie

This quiltie is for the February swap on Fabrics in Altered Arts. I found the quote "Love is the wine of existence" by Henry Ward Beecher. I used this quote as my inspiration. Wine bottle is printed on paper and bonded to Peltex Double Sided Fusible. Lovely pearl bead button is a thrift store find. The binding is leftover quilt binding from the Christmas Cat Quilt. Seems I've found uses for most the leftovers from this quilt. I just hate to throw away such beautiful fabric.

I found the hanger at the thrift store. Have no idea what it's original intent was but after removing a few pieces with the pliers, it made a great hanger for the quiltie. Never know what you'll find at the thrift store. The key is to see the "possibilities".
