Fiber Art Quilt By Danny Mansmith

Awesome mail art! This is the front cover of the package.



This is what I found after opening the first layer of wrapping. It's wrapped many times with different colors of thread. It's like X-Mas in Oct!!


This is the back view before removing another layer.




The drawings below are what covered the papercut flower showing above and yet another layer of string to cut through!.





This is the piece I was dying to see! This is a mixed media art quilt created by Danny Mansmith. He is one incredible fiber artist and I just love this piece I bought from his Etsy shop a few days ago. If you zoom in on this photo, you can see the detail in the stitching and the eyes are too cool!!!!!

Very talented indeed!! Danny's work is very inspirational!
I wanted to buy one of his pieces before he became well known and then I wouldn't be able to afford one.
