Crazy Art Quilt

This week was spent walking around the Brimfield Flea/Antique Market and I got some treasures!!  The sequins in the first circle were found on Monday at the vintage textile show in Sturbridge MA.  The second table I came to had a this pile of wonderful sequins.  They are about  5mm crinkly maroon (although they may look orange in the picture) and I believe they have gold leaf sprinkled on them...  I couldn't resist!!!!!!   They were just in time to adorn one of the last three circles.  I replaced what I had originally done and added them.

Sorry for the lint ... the velvet I used in the squiggles around the circle does a lot of shedding.  I also found the pink size 15 faceted steel cut metal beads I used in my chop on Monday.  These are the last 3 circles!!!

Wow just beautiful as always. This quilt has really inspired me to learn this technique. I can't wait to see the whole thing all together.

I'm so jealous that you were at Brimfield without me!!! I love your creativity...lovely work. I envy your talent...embroidery is so soothing, yet challenging.

What a lucky and unusual find those sequins are! Your last three circles are to die for. I really love the pink.... Hugs, Cathy
