Free-Motion Quilt Challenge 2012 June

Its slow going, so I thought I would post the progress..

I added some pearl seed beads.
I would never have thought of that if I hadn't seen Cindy Needhams wonderful work!

Another with the center circle and the beads.
Here you can see where I have satin stiched over some of the lace - big mistake - I should have left that as it was.  I have also  sewn cown each side of the satin stitch and the inside of the outer lace - if that makes sense.

I have begun now with random fillers... The next one will be done differently I think - maybe on some silk.
This one is on cotten... and its not very soft!

More later I hope.
Unfortunately we have to eat tonight :(
