One of the best birthday gifts this year was a silk-covered, beaded box full of antique textile scraps and little, aged bags of sequins and beads (thank you, MR!!!). I added some sparkle to the bird’s head.
She is almost ready for binding. This will be a quilt where I add to the edges rather than true it down. This blue silk, while luscious, pulled apart at a pace that amazed me – shrinking an already too-small back.
Such are the challenges!
