Can you see what I'm doing here? There's a lot of gold tracery printed onto this fabric, so I'm outlining the major motifs of the central panel. I'm using a gold metallic thread that gave me fits at first but has now settled down to behave itself. ;) I've done the two cranes, one of the large flowers, and all of the stylized "clouds". My biggest problem now is deciding how to quilt the squares and large rectangles that form the borders. I'm thinking I'll keep it simple, since there's so much gold printed on these fabrics, too; anything very detailed simply won't show up.
Any ideas out there?
