It's Square! ish

A Mid Summer's Night Dream (MSND)
After all the frustrating hours I have put in to fix this quilt, I decided to share it in it's finished state.  I love the shimmer of the silk and it's iridescence.  Folk Art is my favorite genre of art and to me this is the epitome of folk art. The design was influenced by Mexican and Jacobean art.  All of the fabric is silk dupioni and it was created using fusible applique and stitched with a machine blanket stitch. 
I quilted it with my home sewing machine.

Here are some close-ups:

Sequins were used for embellishment.

The innermost border is rick rack.  Sequins are in each hump, secured with a french knot.

 I used my Curvalicious tool to create the inner border.  I was very happy with the corners.

The coming out party for MSND will be Wednesday night. I will be giving my "Sensational Silk" presentation at the Moorestown Area Quilt Guild.  They meet at 7PM - Mount Laurel Fire House. 
 I hope to see you there.  You 'll be able to see it up close and personal.
