Victorian Charm by Ramona Resurreccion

Ramona Resurreccion is one of my "featured quilters" at our upcoming Special Exhibit in Houston this year on linen wholecloth quilts.  She is from Australia and does the MOST amazing quilting on linens.  I have featured her before but this is her latest piece called Victorian Charm.  All I can say is WOW...there's a reason she's in Houston this year!  Her story is below.   Thank you Ramona and congratulations on a spectacular piece!  Hugs, Cindy

"I named this quilt "Victorian Charm".  I have finally finished it.  One side is a bit faded as I accidentally left it unfinished on the table close to the window where the afternoon sun was so harsh before I left for Japan last year.  It is noticeable when you have a closer look.

I embroidered some free standing lace and applied beads on the background fillers.  I also attached lace arounod the borders.  "

Cheers, Ramona

Holy cow Ramona that's beautiful! What great planning and design and thought you put into it! You have enhanced the original linen design tenfold. Congradulations. I'll bet you are really happy with it.

Very lovely Ramona, wish I could see it in person. You have also given me an idea for a design in an area of a quilt I've been struggling with.
