Big Root Geranium, part 5

There was a lot of heavy weather this weekend--hot, humid, and stormy--so I stayed indoors and worked in the studio. I made a lot of progress on the Big Root Geranium. I layered the top with batting and a backing and began the quilting. I couched down some wonderful handspun wool/silk yarn to add movement across the piece.
Above you can see the outlines of what will be beaded cloud shapes. You can follow the progress of this quilt to date by clicking on Big Root Geranium to the right.
