    Wow!!! Now that had to be a lot of work but well worth the effort. Happy that you showed the close-ups because the overall picture did not do justice to all the work that went into it.

    Lovely - the ribbon work (or is it fabric?) is beautiful - twisted & woven ?

    I love your quilt! The dimensional aspects you added are great, and the iris (my favorite flower) are beautiful. Good job!

    Wow! What a wonderful project. You should make a pattern book out of that one! I know I'd buy it.

    The woven blocks were made with narrrow strips of fabric sewn into tubes and then turned right side out and woventogether and a couple blocks were twisted together. There is a dark purple cording on each side of the inner border. I made the cording from another batik. I used 5 strands of crocet thread inside the cording. I am a former bridal seamstress so some of the techniques are bridal and some are quilting and some I just made up as I went along. It was quite a chalenge to make this quilt. It took a long time, too.

    There are two blocks that were just tucks that were stitched going different directions and an embroidery stitch was sewn on top of the stitching line. I just made up some things as I sewed.

    Thank you for all the compliments.
