Quilt

This is my latest piece featuring a felted insert. I hand stitched the large sequins in place by using the foundation for a Spider Web then surrounded them with Chain Stitch. To echo the Sequins, I used Back Stitch and more Chain Stitch.  It was then applied to a hand dyed cotton and machine quilted.  The edge is yarn zigzagged by machine.  The piece is about 16" by 20". Blogger insisted that it be sideways, but I like it, so I left it.

 Here is a detail. The color is actually a bit more intense.
