This is showing work in progress
The piece has been quilted by hand, embroidered and beaded.
As the fabric has 16 colours I have used a wide variety of beads and embroidery threads to reflect thecolours and wonderful quality of the fabric - it was a dream to work with (but then it was expensive fabric).
The embellishments were worked to bring the trees 'forward' so the houses were 'pushed' into the background
So the dominant trees were beaded and the trunks embroidered
Only the central part had been selectively quilted
It was all done by hand - apart from sewing on the border and backing
It took a couple of months of work to complete
and now has been backed and bordered in co-ordinating fabric
Now to decide where to hang it .................
Will add a pic of it completed
Has 16 colours in the print and is the pattern 'Lichfield Hills'
