Jacobean finished

I finished my Jacobean quilt. I started the first piece of applique on July 6, 2014. I combined 3 of Patricia B. Campbell's patterns and even designed one of the blocks myself. It's needleturn applique and I also hand quilted it. I've added beads and crystals. Used batiks and Kaffe's fabrics. The background fabric is a yellow batik. I used Ombre fabric for the vines.
El Pajaro en el Jardin de Flores (aka The Bird in the Flower Garden)

Top together

I got the top together on Monday.  What a challenge.  Since the squares were all different size and shapes it was something else.  Quilting it by the square also added to the challenge, but I prayed alot and it's together.  I'm sewing the back sashing together now.  Then I have to add the outside border, same fabric as the front sashing, then quilt those and it will be finished.  I checked and I started appliquing this one July 6, 2014....oh yes and I still have to add beads and crystals.  Oh boy, still lots to do on this one, but it certainly is further along that it was.....

Jacobean going together

Well, I almost have the Jacobean together.  since I'm quilting it "lap quilting" style it makes it different to put together.  Challenging I would say.....I hope to get it together today, then I have to echo quilt into the sashing and finish "blinging" it.....I love this quilt....
hopefully I will show completed pictures very soon

Jacobean first two squares sewn together

I just couldn't wait, even tho I haven't finished quilting that last square.  I sewed two blocks together to see how much more echo quilting I have to do on the joined blocks.  I also have to extend the echo quilting into the sashing.  The sashing is a batik that's purple, lime green, and yellow.  I think it's going to look great, there but not there, does that make sense....I still have to "bling" several of the blocks, including this bird block
