GOLDEN GLOW Spring Challenge is done

Tonight I'm stitchinlong with everyone at Cheryl's
And for the whole weekend I am joining in with chookyblue at
Sorry, I couldn't get the photo to cooperate...

A few years back I went to the Phillip Island Mother's Day retreat
and did a Worksop with Gina Burgess..
The workshop was called Borders with Attitude. Here is my version....

I have finally finished my challenge SPRING quilt. I used glide, guterman, gold glitter, variegated
threads of different thicknesses for texture. Very happy with the finishes.
I've stitched in a bird in flight. All the background stitching is the quilting.
I am very happy with myself. It's the first time I have done anything like this and it's a lot of quilting..
 I love the falling flowers. How light and pretty. They remind me of the cherry blossoms.
The beads give it sparkle.
 I've put large flowers floating on the top with golden beads 
 This was the best photo I could get before I handed it in to the group. I'm not sure when I will be getting it back but it will be on display at our show at the end of the year.
