One of my early UFOs

This has been stuffed in the back of a drawer since about 2002. I had hoped I would open that drawer and find it finished,but alas, no quilt fairy came to work her magic!

This piece is made of hand-painted silk fabric fused to long, skinny strips of low-loft batting that I then stitched together. Next, I free-motion stitched with metallic thread, stamped motifs with gold Lumiere paint, did some hand embroidery, then finished off with beading. 

I am thinking of cutting it up into ATCs.

I like the idea of cutting it into ATCs - what about postcards first and then leftovers for ATCs.

Too much work to toss it.

Me too!  I never thought of cutting up a UFO to use as an might have solved all of my UFO dilemmas.  And, think of all that agression I can work out while cutting them up.

Oh no, don't cut it up.  It's beautiful and you should hang it on the wall.

Pardon my ignorance but what is an ATC?

I have since found out what an ACT is on the site search facility - if the piece is sufficently detailed as to serve the purpose well, it seems a shame to cut it up does it not?  A 'Catch 22' situation - glad I don't have to wield the blade.

I really like it.  It wouldn't take much to finish it.  And; it's perfect for wearable art (vest, etc.).  Don't cut it into small pieces!  It's just beautiful.
