Little Laura 3

image

I do love an encrusted surface and this Laura has a lot of very shiny black beads appliqué-d down the right-hand-side.  There is an old turquoise bead earring on the left, which I got in a lucky bag I bought at a vintage fair.  She also has a strip of burnt orange silk with a traditional wheat ear quilting pattern in turquoise.  I put in some silk to enrich the Laura Ashley fabric and I think that the beads would not have worked without it.  The quilting is clearly a nod to traditional quilt patterns which I really love.
