A Finish!!!

All those seam treatment posts are at an end (at least until I start a new project!!) and here's is the big reveal.  I wonder how many of you guessed what it was going to be?

"A King Is Born"
measures approximately 19 x 30"

- There's a really cute monkey quilt pattern HERE.  

- There are links HERE for some really cute Barbie clothes.

- For those of you who enjoy rubber stamping, HERE is a solution for storing the clear stamps.

Today your quote is from Emily Griffin..."Often I feel that projects overwhelm us when we look at how many hours are involved until completion.  But just getting started is usually not that difficult"  


  1. That is a beautiful 'stained glass' piece, 'A King is born'.
    The quote is so true, 'just getting started is not that hard'
    Thanks for the reminder.

  2. It turned out beautifully:) Did you see the new CQ challenge on Pintangle?

  3. Mary Anne this is beyond stunning! Your black seam treatments all make sense now seeing thiis finished project. I love your design and the subject matter is so very special. Such a true quote that definitely speaks to me with the "just begin!". Gorgeous "King is Born". <3

  4. Oh how beautiful. Myriad of gorgeous and bright colour to be seen here. I always love a stain glass window. Love the black silhouettes against the vibrant background. I must admit when you mentioned you were working on a Christmas project, I did not foresee this beauty. Another amazing project from your wonderful imagination and clever hands!

  5. Oh my gosh this is SO beautiful. It really is AWE inspiring. I love the jewel tones with black stitching and the stained glass technique is of course perfect. I just love it.

  6. Beautiful piece, Mary Anne! You certainly are getting an early start on Christmas projects. Love the vibrant colours with the black stitches.

  7. Oh, that is so beautiful!! Wow! Love the way all the seams have different treatments - and would never have guessed what you were doing! It was a great surprise!

  8. Wow! That's beautiful!

  9. Lovely!! Loved the way you recreated the stained glass effect.I had once a similar project planned using embroidery, but never got around to executing it.

  10. Gorgeous!! Hope you have got some tall roses out your way! Thanks for your visit to my gardens!
