When I get in one of my Victorian moods, it is hard to stop embellishing! The white on white table stand quilt is a good example. I kept going and going, like the you-know bunny! Pearls were added to the lace heart. If you missed part one construction and quilting, click HERE.
Details were added using mostly handwork, and two colors of Aurifil thread.
I added more beads to the top, but they are small and hard to photograph.
I added these neat five sided mother-of-pearl buttons…
and more ribbon roses along with a long line of seed beads.
Aren’t these clear crystal beads neat?
I added some pearls to the Belgian lace basket.
This heart shaped button looks like lace.
The bugle beads went on in a line, and I added a few more after that.
There are five pearls in the diagonal line. There are 88 seed beads on the lower right going up the edge of that patch.
It hangs nicely on the frame from the loops on the back.
Another button to the upper right, and a ribbon rose in the lower right.
I need to press it, forgot to do that!
The white reindeer stays out all winter, and looks wonderful with the quilt. The dark line on the left is a shadow from the frame.
More handwork to come! Do you enjoy handwork?
