This was my first 4x4 quilt and the first ever completed quilt again for a Talk Crafts swap. I must admit, I didn't want to give this away so I hope it's liked. I transferred the oriental image onto fabric. I layered this onto batting and then red fabric. I ironed on the dragon image (note to self to get more of these!). I then stitched the seed beads around the image and added a coin. To complete the piece I quilted various small stitches throughout and added some cord to the edge (to hide the stitching on the outside). I then added a holder to the top and a chinese trinket to the bottom to finish it off. It is not very well finished off I'm afraid, a bit rough around the edges, I promise to make a more refined one for myself soon :o)
I am very pleased to say that the lovely lady who received this has sent me a picture of it hanging up in her home on a lovely dark red wall. Thank You so much Mary for not just putting it in a box or drawer somewhere. It made my day.
