Guru Love

I have finished this wallhanging "Guru Love" - started last November - just in time to give away for a birthday gift.

Seven beaded motifs - one for each of the main chakras.

Well, it's finished BECAUSE it's a birthday gift - there is no coincidence!! *grin*

I used saree fabrics for the background and applique. The fabrics were purchased during a trip to India January 2010. An embroidery stabiliser was ironed onto the back of all silk blend fabrics - there was a lot of movement and give in them. It would have been impossible to achieve a pleasing results without stabilisers.

Free-motion machine quilted - cotton fabric on the back - it's so pretty!!!

I love the quilt hanger- it's perfect. I'm thrilled to give this to someone special.
