  1. O.M.G. This is more than quilting. With that edge, that looks a lot like tiny crochet, and the 3D look around the trees, this artwork looks alive. Amazingly beautiful.

  8. I think I've seen an edge like that before, but I had no idea there was a name for it. I learned something today!

  9. The one captured "Oya" looks like parts of it were crocheted. Creative and decorative as always!

  18. Hello! I'm playing our infamous A-Z to my choice was old movies if you're interested. I love your quilt you're showing here, but I bet it's really hard on the eyes, and the work is so intricate. I chose crocheting. I'm doing an infinity scarf for my daughter right now. She's a nurse in Missouri... I'm in Illinois. So proud of her. Well your quilt is absolutely beautiful I'd love to have one of those. Have a good weekend & Stay Healthy, Stay Safe & most of all STAY HOME! hugs

  22. I love oya. I have several scarves with the edging, but I've never seen a large work of art with it. It's wonderful. Such a gorgeous quilt - no wonder it was an award winner.

  23. Each time I visit your lovely place I am astounded as to what unbelievable works of art you reveal to us. Turkish Treasures is an Aladdin's cave of jewels and treasure. There is so much amazing detail within the parameters of this quilt. I could look at this pretty forever. The border of Turkish lace is genius! Once again, thank you for opening our world to the gorgeousness that lies within the quilting world and the clever artistes.
