Here are some closeups of the individual blocks. This one I hand sewed little crystals "in the ditch". I got all the embellishments from old clothes- prom/bridesmaid dresses that were beyond other usefulness.
Little crystals in the corners.
The brown fabric has iridescent dots- so pretty in RL, but does not photograph well.
It's a bit hard to see, but there are little mirrored beads all over this square.
This block has turquoise sequins. Yes, I put sequins on a quilt! (I sewed them on really tight.)
More of the ribbon. I so enjoyed all the little fussy details on this quilt.
This quilt had a lot of sparkle to it. When my friend opened it and shook it out, it caught the light and just shimmered. I loved that, so I will have to make one for myself like that eventually.
I apologize for the quality of my photos. I need a better camera. That is on the list AFTER I get a new sewing machine. I had borrowed one but I think I wore it out as the needle won't go up and down anymore, so currently I am sewing on an old (pretty rough) White machine I got at a rummage sale for $3. (Good thing I picked that up!) DH has promised me a new machine, so here's hoping it's sooner rather than later.
