Antepenultimate, Penultimate...

...and now the ultimate:  the last of the commissioned antependia, this one for communion.  I spent a lot of time pondering how to quilt the background.  I wanted something quiet that didn't distract from the design.
 In the end, I settled on a simple echo and crosshatch - shown here from the back - and I am very pleased with the result.  Silk quilts up soooooooo beautifully.
There is a bit more stitching to be done before it's finished, but it's almost there.


  1. Oh, Karen - that's beautiful! I love how you have outlined the grapes, too.

  2. Oooooh, it's so beautiful. I can't wait to see the front!

  3. Just stunning! I cannot wait until you show us the front of this beauty in all its glory!

  4. I think the sign of a good quilter is when the back side is as good as the front.
