New Quilt

I have made this quilt as a project for a new online magazine called iQuilt which is about to be launched.

Midnight Sky is made with one piece of midnight blue hand dyed fabric and the border of metallic hand painted fabric. The painted fabric is also used for the cutout stars. I use Lumiere metallic fabric paints which I love using.

The beading is a simple design of seed and bugle beads repeated over the surface.

The King Tut variagated thread is quilted in a curved linear design with the stars creating their own patterns.

Love this! Very relaxing - soothing. Hmmm I must try acutally beading something instead of just collecting the beads! ha
