Argentum

16.5" x 16.5"  2014

\"Argentum\" is the Latin word for silver, so I thought that was an appropriate name for this silver miniature! Silk/cotton Radiance, silver metallic thread for the machine embroidery (Zundt), and Superior Kimono thread for quilting. The tiny, hand-appliqued bias tubes are about 1/8\" wide; the parallel quilted lines are about 1.5mm apart.

This little quilt won 1st place - Miniatures at Houston IQA 2014, and an Honorable Mention - Miniatures at Paducah AQS 2015.

Look at the tiny details!
