    Very interesting idea! (I have several "prism" pieces leftover.)

    What a gorgeous wall hanging Superbly done in my book. I love all the bright colors and it would look even great in a bigger size. But I love the wall hanging size too.
    You should be very proud of this accomplishment.

    Wow, the back is just as nice as the front. Embellishments are a great idea.

    I agree with Tartan and Lisa. You have an awesome wall hanging. I like the back also. Good Luck, I'm sure it will turn some heads. Would love to see pictures afterwards.

    I am not sure which I like more, the front or the back. I keep scrolling back and forth.

    I'm not sure how I'm going to hang it either...(it will keep in my office for at least awhile). I've been thinking about how to label it so I can hang it either way. Or maybe flip it over once a week or so.

    Yes, I agree with Lisa, clear Swarovski crystals would add sparkle and reflect the beautiful, brilliant threads you have used.

    It looks so wonderful Wendy.

    Wendy - I truly love it -- front and back!!! Let us know how you label your masterpiece. I am planning a two-sided piece and would like to make a label that isn't obvious.

    You did an awesome job on this, beads will enhance the design. Be sure and post a picture when it is complete!!!!

    Lovely!!

    I envision small glass beads of complimentary (or contrasting?) color to the feathers ... perhaps at the end of the "spine" that travels into each feather petal, and in the pebbles that go up the center spine (clusters of beads), and the same clusters of beads in the centers of the flowers.

    Also something to think about ... at 20X24 your quilt qualifies as a "mini" at a lot of shows .... including AQS Paducah!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
