    I'm so happy! I finally got caught up on all the quilts I had to quilt for others.. now I can work on my own things~ When I was sick I really got behind! I felt so bad but everybody was so patient, nice friends!
    This is a work shop we did some three years ago, I've quilted about seven of these wall hanging. It's a color crayon technic, all the ladies added beads some more then others. I was lucky and only broke two this time. I accented using Metallic Gold, that really doesn't show up that great. The rock effect behind the flowers is quilting I did not rock fabric.

    That is some impressive applique and embellishing.
    I think the gold on those pictures gives just enough sparkle.
    I think the way the blocks were laid out and then the flowers/fauna were appliqued, and embellished.
    That is definitely a + on your score card.
    Good job and thank you for sharing.

    How pretty! I love glitz! That is one knock out piece. The quilting is outstanding and really enhances the piece. :lol:

    That is so stunning. I love the rocks that is perfect on that block. That would be a fun technique to learn. Beautiful work!!!

    That is beautifully done, I just love the gold quilting. Can I ask what thread you used, I ask because the one I have keeps breaking in the needle, it kind of just shreds and its buggin me.

    Hi crissise,
    Your group is very talented coming up with all these nice ideas. The crayon with the batiks is a natural match isn't it? Something I will file away for future design ideas.

    In a way it is nice to have quilted the others first, you got to audition what you would do with yours. LoL! Right? You do such a beautiful job of the quilting. Do you do it professionally? I love the sparkle the golden thread adds.

    Thanks for your compliments, I do work for those that belong to my quilting group, I don't know if you could call that professionally, I've been quilting for others for over six years now so maybe, but mostly for the love of quilting. I used my friends long arm for a shot time but I really like moving and drawing with my needle and having control of the quilt~ I'M IN CONTROL~ :lol:
    Elle the type of thread I use is Sulky Metallics Holoshimmer 145-007 and I use a large eyed needle 90/40 by Schmetz called Metallic needle. I DO NOT like the sliver it's really hard to use and tangles a lot. I some time have to lay different spools on their sides, depending on how they are on the spools. Zig-Zag wound have to be on their side ~ I've learned the hard way.

    Hi Crissie, I keep going back and looking at your wall hanging.

    It is absolutely exquisite! The work that you put into it boggles the mind!

    In a previous post you said that you use regular crayons, is that what
    you used in this one too? (I have the fabric crayons - and think maybe the only difference is the price)

    And what did you put in the bobbin when you used the gold thread?

    Thank you for sharing this with all of us.
