This is a hand embroidered mini art quilt by me, Rachel Hunnicutt. It is part of on ongoing series inspired by petri dishes and the things that grow in them - I'm an artist but I'm also a total biology nerd! This tiny quilt includes several colors including turquoise, seafoam green, blue green, ivory, and three shades of coral. The fabric is white cotton, and the batting is an eco-friendly material that is made 100% from recycled plastic bottles.

I used a lot of french knots on this piece to give it texture and interest... plus french knots are my favorite stitch!

This piece is entirely hand sewn - no sewing machine was used in any part of the process. I embroidered the design with cotton embroidery thread, hand sewed the top piece, batting, and back fabric together, then added top stitching for a quilted effect. My initials are embroidered on the back of the piece, and I have also attached a simple embroidery thread hanger for easy display.

Measures approximately 4.25 inches (11cm) in diameter.
