Melissa got her art quilt in the mail today! So, after all this teasing, we have the reveal...
|Detail of beading|
|Detail of the whole constellation.|
All in all, I'm pretty happy with it. I spent many more hours beading than I had planned, but I like the gently sparkling effect the dark blue, black, and purple seed beads give. I wasn't going for a direct copy of the night sky, but rather an impression of the sky. Let's hope Melissa likes it!
