What are you most proud of? The way the disparate elements all came together in a cohesive whole. It looks the way I imagined it: textural and appeals to several senses. And it sparkles! Most important: I learned several new to me techniques.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient! This is not a quick and dirty immediate gratification project. It's hand appliqued, though better sewists than I will easily machine applique or fuse it. The beading is done by hand and takes time. The Flowers are a mix of machine + hand sewing with hand beading....plus tacking them on the piece, by hand.

Wow! Simply beautiful! You put a huge amount of time into this with all the hand stitched applique, quilting, details, and beads.

Thank you, for your lovely comments! I learned much on this project, but it was so fun, ( and meditative) the time flew by.

Thanks! Hard to replicate the texture and beading by machine.
