Sneak Peek! (Almost finished!)

Upper Right Corner
The binding is on!  At first, I hadn't planned on adding the binding, but when I got to the finishing stage, realized that without a binding, the edges just didn't seem complete.  The binding helps add a finishing touch to it.  I changed the button on the taupe velvet patch.   This one has a better scale for the location.

New Bird Bead Added
As the finishing stages progressed, I realized that a few elements needed added and/or changed.  I added the bone bird bead to this block.

Center Button
For the center of the quilt, I played with lots of options, but ended up moving this lovely mother of pearl button from it's prior location in the upper right corner down to the center.   It just shines at this location where it was a bit lost before.

Bunny and button added
In the lower left, I added another tiny mother of pearl button with a few beads and below the fern, I added one of my favorite bone bunny beads!

Border without Feather Stitching
While I loved the seam binding border, it needed something a bit more.

Border with Feather Stitching
A bit of feather stitching was just the thing!  I'll finish stitching the remaining three sides tonight.  Tomorrow, I hope to post a photo of the finished quilt hanging on the wall!

Lovely! I do like the one tone quilts. There's so many options for adding texture without it seeming too busy.
