Timeless Treasure...Ramona Resurreccion!

Many of you know that Ramona will be featured in my exhibit in Houston this fall...her work is AMAZING and intimidating and gorgeous all at the same time.  She shared with me her latest work of art.  Oh my!!!   I will share her story below but I have to add this little tidbit...she told me "I politely asked my family not to disturb me while I was working on Timeless Treasure.  The quilting took me 2 weeks to finish and another week working on the covered cording including attaching it to the binding...3 weeks including the beading."  3 weeks???  And you can ask your family not to disturb you while quilting?  I didn't know you could do that!!!!  Here's Ramonoa's story...thank you Ramona for being such an inspiration to all of us.  Hugs, Cindy
I called this quilt "Timeless Treasure" which measures 147 cms square. The underlayment is lime green Hanoi silk which I purchased from Vietnam in 2014. 


I used your Ultimate Background grid for the background fillers which I'm so happy with.  I have done some beading and covered cording which I cut into 200 pieces and attached them around the binding.


 I hope I have done enough to enhance this linen.  Cheers, Ramona

Gorgeous quilt. And, I'm looking forward to seeing it up close and personal at Houston. Primary reason for me to attend Houston this year, is to see your exhibit.

AMAZING. This is beyond spectacular. What a humble woman Ramona is saying ' I hope I have done enough to enhance this linen'.

What a treasure! Yes, Ramona, you've done just the right amount to enhance this linen! Thanks, Cindy, for sharing her story with us.

Oh my! This is beautiful Ramona and I just know you are bringing this to Houston so we can see it up close and personal! Love the cording, something I have been wanting to try. You can teach me in Houston :). Oh, and thanks for the family lesson....I guess there will be a few of us telling family to just leave us alone for awhile now that we know that works!
