Ok, Here it is, in all of it's finished glory! This is the quilt I've been working on in the class I'm teaching at the art studio. The Glue-resist technique results in a rather batik-y look.  You might need to copy it and zoom to see the details (I'm so much better with thread then a camera!).  I painted over it with some irridesent shimmers. The inner (red) border is scalloped and embellished with seed beads (love the texture that added). It's stitched with metalics and has blingy-thingies glued on here and there to help balance the sparkle factor.

Very cool! I wish the camera could reflect all the beautiful sparkle the way our eyes see them. Do you use fabric paint or dyes for the glue resist?

Now don't you laugh, Stephanie. I use, *ahem* ultra cheap crafters acrylics. The stuff you buy in the craft dept in Walmart. I thin it down a bit with water so it spreads.

Very nice and I too wish the camera could pick up the shimmer that I know must be there - you really did do an awesome awesome job and should be breaking your arm patting yourself on the back - thank you so much for sharing...  God bless, Thea
