It was only last week that I showed you a picture of Diane Zdep's embroidered Oriental Beauty. Now she has done it again, with another finished beauty! Stitched in blue tones with a delft blue church scene machine embroidered in the centre it doesn't resemble my original version in the least. Diane has done some very pretty quilting, if you zoom in you can see the details better. I especially like the radiating lines quilted in the corners as they help draw your eye to the centre.
Here's my version. Stitched in scrappy Christmas prints it has a totally different look from Diane's nicely coordinated palette.
The pattern for Christmas Beauty # 308 is here on the checkout page of my website, or ask at your local quilt shop.
Thank you, Diane. What's next for you?
