FINISHED WORK


When placement of the fabrics is to your liking,either hand or machine stitch them into place on to the main background fabric.

If you added the wadding between the layers, "quilt" around some part of the image to give it dimension.

Add beads,charms etc where required.

As you can see, I added more beads and pearls to the original fabrics and laces.
The blue trim down the left side is the actual rouleau loops from the back of a silk brides-maid's dress...the same one the lace motifs came from, so recycling has paid a large part in my work....vbg.

It is entirely up to you as to how much you add to embellish your
Quiltie...but if you listen to it...it will tell you when it has enough...vbg

  1. What a fabulous challenge! You've created such a gorgeous quiltie - I just love it - and as this is one of my favourite things to do right now, I shall be joining in again! Thanks so much for your tutorial - so helpful, especially all the alternatives you've given. :)
