| My quilt that won the Marie Osmond Challenge was auctioned off on eBay.
I did bid on it, but lost out at the last minute. I wanted something more
than pictures, so I made another quilt. This one is larger, but the fabrics
are the same and are placed the same was they were in the first quilt. I did
use prairie points on this one too, but after that the embellishments are
different. I did use real pearls and real amethyst beads. I kept the colors
of the embellishments the same, but not used in the same way. The center is
also totally different. I like this one better, probably because it has more
“stuff” on it. I do love the glitz.
You can never see detail in an overview photo, so I am including a few close ups.
These aren’t the greatest pictures in the world, but hopefully you can tell
what is going on.
Each block has a Shisa mirror on it.
Close up of the center and you can see the beaded feathers on two blocks.
You can see the pearls in this picture.
A closer close-up of the center.
The large beads are a light purple amethyst.
Tiny amethyst beads, very dark amethyst tear drops, and mother-of-pearl.
That is it for this issue. I hope you enjoyed the close ups.
