"Where Is Cornelia?"

Hi, I am continuing to work on my "Where Is Cornelia?" wall hanging.

After using colored pencils in the background of my "Where Is Cornelia?" quilt, I found matching metallic thread and added some stitching on the edge of the flowers. 

They are already fused onto the background so the stitching is only ornamental. (See all the things you can do to avoid actually finishing a project!)

My next search was for interesting, complimentary fabric that I could use for a binding. I came up with this after rejecting several other choices. The curving lines seem to add to the center design without competing with it. So, on I go.



The fact that the fabric was cut along some of the swirls inspired me to start thinking in a new direction. What if I added some of the swirls to the edge of the design? 
(Yes, I know, another way to prolong finishing it!)

Maybe next week????

If you are interested in making your own version of 
it is available for purchase on my website.


  1. REALLY like the addition of the swirls to the quilt! Sometimes projects just need to be prolonged :) This is wonderful!

  2. Yes! That purple swirly fabric is to cool to hide in the binding. And it goes so well with the rest of the piece. Looking forward to seeing how it comes out :-)

  3. I just love the hand stitching. What an effect.

  4. Yes, I think adding the swirl fabric will enhance the quilt. On we go.....

  5. This is gorgeous...and go for more swirls--"finishing" is overrated.
    best, nadia
