What a Difference a Pearl Makes!
I am still frantically trying to get everything done for Sisters and am down to the last 100 pearls to be added to this quilt. I wanted to show it to you while it was still in progress so you could appreciate what a difference a few details make.
This started out as a drawnthread work tablecloth. I placed it on a light pink Radiance and then added a small tray cloth to the middle. The middle design is from Elly Sienkiewicz's Baltimore Album Blocks collection and was quilted with Superior Threads' Bottom Line. The feather work was done with two different colors of Superior's Highlights and Nature Colors.
The beadwork on the tray cloth used clear/white and clear/pink beads and of course lots of freshwater pearls.
I have named this piece "Blooming Where I Was Planted". I wanted to acknowledge all the amazing things that have happened to me since quitting my full time job three years ago to follow my dream. Cindy
