Bat Trio at Dusk is a 5 inch by 7 inch quilted art piece featuring 3 bats in flight as the sun sets. This is an original creation designed and created by me. I will make no others exactly like this. It is truly a one of a kind mini piece of art.

I hand dyed a piece of muslin using textile paints for the background and then free motioned stitched 3 bats using black thread. The bats are each approximately three inches across and 1 inch high. I quilted down black fibers to give their bodies a fuzzy look just like the real nighttime creatures.

For the sunset, I machine quilted down yellow fibers using a variety of variegated cotton threads with a free motion stitch. I used thread in hues of yellows, oranges and reds to give dusk impression. The colors change from yellows to reds across the piece.

The reverse is cream muslin and is blank so that there is plenty of white space for you to add your own personal message using fabric markers or pens. I often give these to friends as gifts to commemorate special occasions with my personal message written on the back. This art piece is titled and initialed on the back.

The piece is bound with black cotton thread which accents the cute little batty bats.

Between the two layers of fabric is stiff interfacing. This gives the piece stiffness which adds to its versatility. It could be displayed on an easel or easily hung on a wall. You could even mount it in a black shadowbox type frame for a wonderful presentation.

If mailing this piece as a postcard you will need to use a regular first class stamp as the size is larger than a standard postcard. Simply use fabric pens to address the back, write your message, attach a stamp and send it off in the mail to a friend.

I prefer to give mine wrapped as gift itself...a unique mini art quilt, suitable for framing or hanging as is.

Enjoy!
