Shibori quilt - part six

The Spruces of Utah

After completing the hand quilting through all three layers of the quilt sandwich, I marked the outer edges and zigzag stitched with my machine all along the lines.  Then I cut out the quilt close to the lines and zigzagged around the edges again to make sure they were secure and wouldn't slip.

The edge was finished with 3 strands of embroidery floss, using a blanket stitch.  I added a sparkly silver-lined green 8/0 bead to every third stitch.  The finished size of the quilt is 18 x 21 inches

LOL!! On the pile with all the others :-/ I've got to do something about this...
I especially like the little beads to add glitter to the snow you mentioned in the last post, I can imagine it, even if I can't see it in the photo. Very nice overall.

Something that might work to show off glitter in pieces is to take a short 15 second video with a little panning across the work and post it to youtube to embed. Just something I've been thinking about trying myself.

What a GREAT idea! Thanks so much for the suggestion...I would never have thought of doing that, but I'm sure it would work. Now, to unearth my camera from the fabric pile...
Funny Eileen...that's exactly what I was going to ask...and Cyndi, sounds like me...only mine is "in the box". Gotta do something about this...It's gorgeous, I love the beads.
