Art Quilts are fun to make. Create some ART by making a little Mixed Media Quilt using some great buttons, trims and specialty stamps. Once you create one you will be hooked and want to create several using words that inspire you. Oh, by the way the specialty stamps used in this project are from my new line of stamps from Unity Stamp Company so be sure and check them out as they have so many possibilities! You can use them for making cards, scrapbook pages, mini books and so much more.
