    My Prisms Wall Quilt with FMQ'd Feathers

    Here's a small wall quilt I've been working on for the last couple of weekends. It's a bit of an experimental piece that I'm thinking about entering a competition at a quilt camp I'm going to in about a month. It measures about 20 x 24, and I did the freemotion quilting on my Juki DSM.

    I'd like to still add some beads and maybe some other "stuff" and would appreciate any suggestions!

    Gorgeous! I think some kind of tassel or dangling beads would look nice on the points of the bottom row. They would hang in the black, look pretty and create movement as people walk by.

    I should not even open my mouth (or my keyboard) because I'm not in your quilting league, but since you asked, I'd love to see some kind of crystals in the center of the flowers you've quilted.

    Great suggestions Tartan and Lisa! I've been looking for something to make some beaded tassels out of but haven't found quite the right combination yet...

    Beautiful! I also thought a bead or crystal would look nice in the center of each flower. Let us see what you decide to do.

    What a gorgeous piece, your project stitching makes me feel like such a beginner. What an inspiration to those starting to quilt their own projects! Thanks for sharing the photos.

    Now wouldn't any of those be cute bookmarks? I'd say so. Blessings to you.
