Quilting Details

It took a few days, but here is a shot of some of the quilting on the 'Best Friends' quilt. Still not quite sure what I am going to call this piece, but 'Best Friends' works for now. In this shot you can see the tablecloth, with sheer organza over the part that is in the direct path of the overhead light. The wine glasses got a wash of paint, a hint of glitter, then a layer of tulle. The cards are drawn with pigma pens on muslin, then pressed to set the markers. Where the tablecloth drops, you can see a thick band of thread paint to delineate the edge of the table top. Finally, the hands and arms are raw-edge applique with thread painted details. See the shadow of the arm? That is a piece of fabric under the organza--it added just the right quality. I hope to have the embellishments done and the piece ready for exhibit soon. I definitely plan to have it at Maine Quilts this summer--maybe other venues if something looks promising.
