Caribbean Nights

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The palm tree motif really made the quilt !!! Without that, it was blah, even with the bright colors, Then I added the moon and silver rays, followed by about 150 stars (beads) foiled on some waves, and added over 50 aqua beads to represent the beautiful water to complete the picture.... The back is a very dark blue with little white stars on it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? It really is a fun class. Have fun and put your ruler away. In my case fusing on a motif worked instead of investing in silk screening materials. I have ideas for future backgrounds, that are more calm, but this was my first attempt and I only used materials that I had on hand.

What you will need

  • Cotton
  • fusible web
  • silver thread
  • foil
  • silver lame
  • organdy
  • and over 200 beads ...21" X 21"

Judith Trager asked:
And, good luck at the Fair! I am originally from San Rafael, California and know the area very well! Judith
austergal answered:
Hi Judith, I got a peek at my quilt after it was judged and hung at the Santa Rosa Fair. (I was turning in 2 quilted purses) and I spied a robbon on it. :-) I really want to see the judges comments on the back of the card. The fair opens on the 25th. es
