After finishing the post below I thought I should share pictures of the rest of the quilt! You've seen me working on this on earlier posts and it has been in my machine since March. I am going to be teaching at the Sisters Quilt Show this coming July and they asked for quilts for the teacher's exhibit...of course I had to list two quilts that weren't even done so it gave me a deadline to get them both finished. I'll show you the second one as soon as all the bead work is complete.
These are just quick shots to give you an idea of how it all turned out (overall picture only shows the middle section of the quilt). The original linen is in the middle and was a Christmas gift from my daughter Emily. I placed it on Kaufman's Radiance fabric which is 55% silk and 45% cotton...delicious fabric! The feathering was done with Superior Threads' Highlights #795 and #796 and the cathedral window background in Bottom Line #652.
As soon as the rod pocket lace is attached and the signature linen complete I will post those too.
