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?

It is truly gorgeous. You are very talented. 😍Love it
Beautiful mini quilt. My friend wants me to make her a white on white lap size quilt. I can’t find a pattern or example of that til I found yours. I have a lot of antique lace and embroidered items (pillowcases, towels) I could incorporate into a quilt. What type of background did you do? Crazy quilt? I would appreciate your suggestions or if you have a pattern.
Thank you. Nancy Miller
Just beautiful. Not sure if I could do it, I’m just a beginner. I admire your talent. How long have you been quilting?
Perfectly beautiful. This would make a lovely ring bearers pillow top.
Just beautiful Carole. What a great idea. Looks like an heirloom type. Quilt. Thank you for the idea. And happy NewYear 2019.
Looking at this after seeing it in your 1/2020 posting for January white. I was wondering, being a total novice, how all the stitching is hidden, as you are adding these lovely additions after having already quilted with the backing on? Does that sentence make sense? Anyway, it is beautiful, and i admire all that you do!
I’m late to this party but had to say this is absolutely lovely. Caught my breath. From your comment about crystal beads – I often use them but sew them on with colored thread. Gives just a hint of color. Started when my daughter’s prom dress needed beads and just couldn’t find the color, so used the dress thread to spice it up.
When you made this were you tempted to make a full sized quilt? Looks like a lot of work. But so beautiful.
