This is my "S" quiltie for the alphabet quiltie swap on Fabric In Altered Arts 2. Can't believe we will finish this swap later this year. It has been so much fun. This month our hostess, Penny, gave us the theme of "shiny". I looked around my studio and found the shiny decorative trim. I think someone sent it to me as part of a swap. Then I remembered the gold snail that I had purchased at the thrift store some time ago. I was saving the beauty for just the right art project. S-Shiny-Snail This was the right project. The pink hand dyed fabric is from my stash. I finished the edges in gold thread to add some extra shine. The metallic thread was no problem for my Janome 11000. Now it's time to mail the quiltie to Penny.
