Click on photos to see more details The entire quilt is hand sewn (except maybe the turning of the background fabric to the rear)... I have Mim to thank for the main two pieces of "gossamer" fabric in turquoise and gold, THANK YOU MIM for this gift! They inspired me to heavily
embroider and hand bead this piece! I had fun adding my silk tie flower buds to the corners...
& adding zippers for stems...
And large crocheted flowers in central focus...
I loved the flower centers using buttons and jewelry wire and beads for stamens giving it a dramatic 3D effect.
This quilt will take her chances at the juried art show locally and at the Dixon May Fair art quilt show: art quilt division.
The challenge was to do something different
and as you can see many of the materials used
are "different" from things I have used before.
Gossamer: The "samer" means Summer, but my 'different' is calling this
