The group blog of twelve quiltmakers and textile artists scattered around the world in 7 countries and across four continents. Our aim is to create a small quilt every three months.
The theme is chosen by the members in turn.

This is the title I thought of the moment the new subject was announced. I wanted to construct a design and not a "picture" as this is what I tend to do most of the time - maybe I am too literal and see things in pictures! Anyway I drew this up and used lots of metallic thread once I started the thread work. I hope you can see the silver threads among the gold, they are not too clear in the photograph, but are there nevertheless. It was a lovely theme and I thoroughly enjoyed the process. The background is hand dyed cotton, gold silk in the design with lots of metallic threads.
