Orvieto Window Complete

 All finished and faced.
I decided that it needed another layer - I love this technique and am developing it into a new workshop for next year.

I printed the original image onto a transparency and then, using the overhear projector, projected it onto the quilt on the design wall.

Then I drew around the shapes with a chalk pencil.

Using a 12wt Aurifil Cotton Mako thread I then quilted the outline and then painted it with the gorgeous Opulence Paint (Odays #23) with a little Gold Shimmer added to give it even more of a patina.
Then I quilted it to death. I love quilting and adding yet another layer of texture.
