Update quilt progress
I have been busy working on the tree that is on the right side of the quilt. I added all the leaves and flowers. Today I added the goddess heads and the charms and beads. I also added the scarabs . The beads I used were a hematite star,and heart. I added a peace sign and ankh charm. I used embroidery thread to make french knots for the center of the flowers and tiny buds next to the blossoms.When I made the tree I added all of my embellishments and embroidery and pinned it to the quilt top. Next I will attach it to the quilt and add a little more machine embroidery to the surface. In the next couple of days I will start working on the cliffs on the left side of the quilt. I want to add flowered vines running down the face of the cliffs.
