So excited to share my birthday gift to myself today...finishing this quilt wall hanging in time to enter it in my first ever entry to a quilt contest with deadline of next week!!!!!! It was based on a painting my daughter, Heather did in high school after seeing the tall ships in Chicago. This took me nearly 4 months to complete and is completely hand sewn, embroidered and beaded throughout. It w...ill evenually be gifted to my daughter after hopefully placing in the quilt contest. It measures about 48" x 42". The picture doesn't show all the detail work with beads and embroidery...it is quite heavy and textural. Gonna have my daughter take better photos in her art classroom so it will be more professionally hung for better entry photos.

Suzy, I was able to click on it twice and see it close up.  It is exquisite!  I love the bead work, and the design is striking as well.

Once I zoomed in, I could really see all the details.  The buildings in the skyline scene are especially awesome.

Very nice work, Suzy.  I zoomed in to get a look at the embellishments you did.  What a lot of work!  BTW = I recognize the buildings in your skyline.
