.... to work on the challenge piece for Congleton quilt group . You may remember that the group will be 30 years old this year ... PEARL.. and we were given ..
a piece of muslin and a pearl bead. I have had several idea floating around .. but I made my mind up and ... went for it to-day xx
First off it was the fabric selection .. the main /background fabric is wonderful in the flesh.. trying to get a picture was not so easy..
it is a pinky silvery shimmery fabric..
hopefully you will have an idea of what it is like . Then the second fabric..
this also has a shimmery look as it is shot through with gold and silver thread. WHEN the fabric was decided on I turned to the pattern. I LOVE children's picture books for their simplicity... I dug out this one ..
and on the page for 8 there are ..
SO.. to work xx I appliqued the numbers ..
and quilted the clams around them..
then around the edges I sewed on 2 sets of 30 pearls x.....
AND THE MUSLIN? ... well it needs a hanging sleeve and a label...
AH! All done ... it says June because that is when the piece is due in xx I'm very happy with it x
