    My post didn't seem to make it yesterday, so here it goes again. Sorry if there are duplicates.

    I made this quilt as a retirement gift for a dear friend I have known since childhood. It highlights her love of Asian fabrics and her own glowing loveliness. It was machine quilted, machine appliqued and embellished with crystals, fabric painting and inks. My friend's gown was made from satins and tulle; her earrings are tiny crystals and her pendant is a small bead on a "chain" of doubled metallic foil thread. The misty wisps in the sky are sheer organzas and tulle. The stars in the sky are all individually glued.

    I am giving it to my friend today and hope she likes it.
