Beautiful!!  I want to know more about it!!

The fabric is called "Los Santos" by Free Spirit.

I free motion quilted around the Madonna and then hand bound the edges in a Teesha Moore style.

Then the fun part - Beads & Sequince  Grin

Of course I have to do this part while sitting on my bed watching TV. Four chihuahua's jumping everywhere makes a big mess of all my little tchotchkeys.

In the morning I woke up with green sequince stuck to my legs and glass beads on my pillow Roll Eyes

I love to do hand work as much as I love machine quilting and shiney is my favorite color! If it has "bling" I want it on everything! ( hence the sequince )

This fabric is out of print now but you can still find it online and in some quilt shops.

If you have any questions, don't be afraid to send me a message. Wink
