    It started as a Convergence Quilt ....

    I think I had better stop adding to this quilt! I wanted to try Ricky Tim's Convergence Quilt ... piecing that part only took about 1 1/2 hours one night. I then fused and appliqued some figures cut out from the lower left fabric. But then I kind of got carried away (with some help from QB ... see this previous thread: Art quilters, please help: how can I fix this quilts?

    I added some beading (my first attempt) and some fabric origami flowers (again, my first attempt). I tried out a new FMQ design in the upper left part, Diane Gaudynski's "Celtic Bubbles". I really like how that part came out.

    Oh, the pink/purple fabric in the upper left was a fat quarter that my sister-in-law gave me when I first started quilting a few years ago. It was hand dyed by one of her friends. The lower left fabric with all the neat figures is a Laurel Burch fabric "Celestial Dreams"

    Stunning. Absolutely stunning. I am drawn to traditional patterns and reproduction fabrics but I really like your quilt a lot. Great job!

    That is really cool. There's one more teeny tiny touch I'd add. See if you can't find some super tiny clear round beads and add fish bubbles for the school of fish.

    Funny you should say that. I didn't have any clear beads, but I did try some bubbles using larger beads that had an inner core of blue (ones I used for some of the eyes). I wasn't happy with them, so I took them off. Your idea about totally clear ones is intriguing ... I'll see if I can find some. THx!
