    Very beautiful!!! It looks exactly like stained glass with the thinner lines. Love it and thanks for the idea. Doing a stained glass quilt is on my one day list

    Beautiful quilt, I have a lot of stain glass my DH does it for a hobby and your quilt looks like a lot of the roses he has done for me. Keep up the good work.

    What an exquisite piece. The thinner "lead lines" really do make it special and the fabrics...Wow. Great story too. Thank you so much for sharing with us.

    I am so impressed with your spending such quality time with some sweet ladies at the nursing home. My dmil spent a few years in one and I don't know that anyone ever spent time visiting with them except family members. You are so kind to spend your time with them. I don't think I could make anything that beautiful while talking with friends! You are awesome!

    Really lovely! The use of the black yarn is so much finer than most stained glass with bias tape. I will be sure to use this technique the next time I try stained glass. My youngest DD has put in a request for a pictorial with leading and now I know what to use. Thanks for sharing!

    Absolutely stunning!

    I used to do stained glass and your quilt looks like real stained glass. I especially love the details like the lines in the leaves.

    Keep up the fantastic work and thanks for sharing.

    I think it is just gorgeous. I like your way with the yarn in straws must've made it easier. I love the stained glass it's amazing to see how gorgeous it turns out quilting. Sue

But the generally accepted way to do a quilted stained glass was with bias tape, too wide but would make the effect of the thick came. I wanted the look of the lines that were soldered. I had stitched over yarn to make a fancy braid for a Bishop's costume in the theater so I tried that first. I was lucky, it worked. I put my yarn through straws across the back of my machine, and down the front and then down to the foot. With a small zigzag, I stitched over the yard not even having to touch it.

    This quilt top was finished ready to quilt but I had to go to the nursing home, I needed to get my son out for an activity. So I packed the machine and the quilt top. I sat quilting talking to eight ladies at the nursing home. One was the lady from across the street when I was a child. The first machine I ever sewed on was a treddle at her house. Come to find out she didn't sew. It was Grandma Mary's. We past the day talking and me quilting when suddenly I found I had a bubble from not watching what I was doing. But I got it out as well as I could. We talked about quilts and clothing they had made, giggled and laughed. The quilt has wonderful memories of that day so I put it as the photo when my name pops up.
