Here's the current 7 that will be given to the quilt guild for the January 2013 quilt show. None measures more than 20" on a side; almost all are embellished by beads.
I tried to use a variety of techniques, from paper piecing to applique (both raw edge and turned edge) to regular machine piecing. Here are some close-ups of the newest 5:
Raw edge iris applique.
Paper pieced pink ribbon for breast cancer awareness.
Paper pieced flower, with appliqued leaves and a wide border. This one is all batiks, my favorite fabric. The only embellishment is a thin line of an orange/copper metallic.
Little pinwheels and flying geese in William Morris reproduction prints. Pearls (no, not real ones) used for embellishment.
A simple square-in-a-square pattern using 1930's reproduction prints and a bright white-on-white fabric. I used a variegated thread for the quilting.
It's going to be hard to give these all up!
