La Voyageuse

This quilt was amazing, it was intricate.  Boutis was used for the quilt, closely spaced.
What makes it even more remarkable, it is done with silk fabric.  The size of La Voyageuse, 90"x90".

Celtic Designs was aplliqued by hand and lots of hand embroidery was used to create accents.
 Each block was hand quilted and to add a little bit of sparkle, Swarovski crystals was sewn on to the quilt.
 It was the one, that won my heart at the show.

Applique and Art Meet, this is what happens!

 Pixel Art.
Postage-Stamp Rose.

Muskoka Morning.

Loving Murano, Italy.

This and That, at Quilt Canada 2017.

Walking with a friend, there was lots that followed many of us home.
 This giant button, is sold as a coaster, it is non slip.
