Machine stitched cathedral window updating an old favorite
I printed one of my Digital Collage designs on fabric, pieced on the black borders, layered and quilted the piece. I added the bow with beads and then the silk ribbon embroidery.The gears, clock face and brass butterfly finished it off.Silk Ribbon leaves, embellishments and beads rounded out the central motif.
