Domino, my Romeo

Lived the good life from April 3, 1993 til December 9, 2011. Here he is with Perley, when he still looked handsome.

I put this little piece on a purple background, quilted the blocks down with more circles and straight lines at the edges, and used silk thread to make french knots around the blocks. Then I lightly rubbed a bronze stamp pad across the top, then lightly dusted copper Pearl-ex powder all over.
I will cut it down to about 10" square and put a facing on the back.
Certainly there is lots of room for improvement in technique, but I felt absolute joy working on this little quilt. I am inspired and will have to find some dedicated studio time after the holiday.
