Finished Arabesque.

This is it, finally done. 

This was a Quilt University course with Martine House and is a hand done piece with three types of appliqué, embroidery, needle lace, beading, quilting and trapunto. It's kept me quite on my stitching days with my Ladies!!

Thank you for the nice comments about the Journal quilts, tulips, (I think they are the only group Val, about 5), and the dyeing.  You're still not seeing the results just yet!! :-) 

Also I can't tell you how lovely it is to have someone who shows a genuine interest in what I'm doing.  John professes to have no artistic talents but to me his input is invaluable, probably because he has no preconceived ideas.  He asks plenty of questions about my projects when I think he hasn't taken any notice and has really been keen on the dyeing of the fabrics.  It's the little things that spur me on and him wanting to be a part of it all is wonderful.


  1. The Arabesque quilt is just beautiful. Amazing result from an online course, testament to the quality of QU as well as your own skill.

  2. Aww, thanks Maggi! I really enjoyed getting down and stitchy with a real needle!

    And you're right about QU, it's great. Just signed up for my 8th course. I have learned not to try and do them all at once though!!

  3. Wow, that is fantastic! And all from an online course? I never even considered doing that.


Thank you for commenting, it is much appreciated.
