pearls pearls pearls

a funny sort of word isn't it especially as they are so beautiful. i've been working really hard to complete this piece.i'm sending it to the festival of quilts for the quilters guild challenge 'pearl essence'. only the boring bits to do now, the sleeve and the label. my piece is called tahitian pearl reflecting all the luscious dark iridescent colours you find in those mysterious deep sea pearls. it was a challenge for me working with pearls and circles and not making it look too 'twee' - hope it works. i've already got a pearl quilt in the quilters guild exhibition at st anthony's in york - you've got time to go to see it as it goes on to the end of august.
