Quilt

Thanks to everyone who gave me suggestions for the last piece. As usual the problem is that there too many possibilities. I didn't get a chance to get to the studio to work, as a wind storm knocked out our power. The fabrics are hand painted.
Hand sewing was the thing to do, so I finished the shell piece which I'd machine quilted and put the binding on last week.

Here is a closeup of the main shells which are hand stitched in needlelace with a detached buttonhole as an edging. Painted cheesecloth is behind the stitching.

What is that stitch? It is so lovely and lacy.

Beautiful work as usual!
