All the pieces together.
Onto the quilting...
I'm stitching with gold thread. I have never used metallic thread before and had to do some experimenting with samples. The thread kept breaking. I changed needles numerous times until I determined that a denim 80 needle worked wonders! I have a regular cotton thread in the bobbin.
