    Many thanks for sharing this extraordinary quilt!!! I can't even imagine taking on a project like this. It certainly speaks to the idea that quilting has truly become an art form! (and only makes me wonder what you would possibly be doing next!!)

    A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :!: :!: :!: :!:

    What exactly is glue stick applique? Do you just glue the material on--then stitch them to the background material? The satin stitch would catch the raw edges of two pieces at a time? Do you tuck a quarter inch under?

    Unless it's basic quilting--I'm clueless. :roll:

    Thank you all so much for the wonderful comments! This project is my pride and joy(and so is my daughter). She has taken it everywhere and has showed everyone what her mommy can do. I am very proud of her and of this quilt.

    This makes me wish we lived closer...so you could join my sewing group...and teach and inspire us to sew "outside the box" more.

    I seem to be so stuck making what someone else has worked all the math and techniques out ahead of time...

    and here you are finding a way to quilt one of the old master's works, and proving your not just a quilter, your a quilt artist.

    Bravo...

    The depth of those blues are awesome!! They look like velvet.

    Your daughter must be very happy.
