What are you most proud of? That it is finally done! This has been unfinished for about 2 years. I just love the color & shine.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you're going to use black thread to quilt on black fabric, get the brightest light you can on the sewing - about went blind even using a Bendable Bright Light. Silly me, I decided to echo quilt from the embroidered flowers to the edge of the block - probably should have thought more about that idea!

Thanks for sharing this quilt - it's inspirational. I wish I had the skills to consider attempting to copy it.

Your quilt is wonderful. The blue with the black frames the motifs perfectly.

Thank you, Mayfield! My favorite color is any shade of aqua, teal, turquoise, etc

Darns this is so brilliant - do you have an embroidery machine - just love the dark backgrounds with the colours you have done the embroidery and applique with.

Thanks, Beth! Yes, I have an embroidery/sewing machine - a Bernina 820 - has a large hoop for big designs.

Wow it does such great work - I only have an old Bernina 1230 - it just does basic embroidery. It would be lovely to have a machine like yours - maybe one day.
