Quilt

Wonder what I did with the piece of lace? Here it is featured in this wall hanging. The background is a hand dyed cotton and a batik stripped together in gentle curves. Then I applied the lame moon shapes. Ellen Anne Eddy had a Utube video where she showed that, and I liked the idea of the related shapes and had to try it. Both the backbround and the lame were sitting on the cutting table and seemed perfect for the lace.        

I applied velvet leaves and hand stitched stem with the chain stitch. Then the lace was applied. Here is a detail.

So you have JUDY'S LACEY GARDEN named to honor a dear friend who died suddenly and unexpectedly on Sunday. I will miss her so.
