Progress!





I have gotten far enough along on the waterfall commission to post a photograph of the test piece. It's quilted but not bound, and I have not put the beads on it. Since this is a test piece, it may be a while before those finishing touches get done.





Here is the detail. Most of the irredescent fabric is sewn into the seams, but there will be a few curly-queues on top, with beads on them. I think this piece really needs lots of beads and lots of seed stitch, but. . .

This test piece is beautiful. I really like the idea of the iridescent stuff sewn loosely into the seams. It really gives the piece a nice flowing water look. Beads sound interesting but they are tedious to do, aren't they.
