The last two blocks are finished! Go, me!!!
this design from Embroidery Library. I needle tatted the green and pink lace pieces and also made my own cording that I couched for the staff. The '97' is made with French knots.
Ignore the basting stitches on the right corner, please. Those will come out soon.
The crown of thorns was done by couching another cording that I made. The couching stitches are meant to look like red thorns. I also dyed the lace yellow.
I have been working on adding the borders. More on that later. I am trying to come up with a name for the quilt so I can enter it in a show. I was thinking 'Inspirations' and then Roxann threw in 'Desperation.' So...Inspiration and Desperation? Inspired Desperation? Desperately Inspired? Blood, Sweat, and Tears? I Can't Believe You Wasted 14 Months of Your Life? Suggestions?
