My Brighton Pavilion - an Art Quilt

This my interpretation of a postcard for the Challenge at Celebration of Quilts last weekend. The postcard was the Brighton Pavilion. Certainly the colours are not correct but I loved the 'Turkish' look of the building. So I have used copper for the onion roofs - heated and scored. Stitched the lattice work and made the uprights from satay sticks. Overall size is 420mm x 300mm.

What an awesome job you've done there! That is simply wonderful! Good for you! Thanks for sharing! 8-)
Happy stitchings!

Thanks Myra - it's always nerve-racking and exciting at the same time working with something different. I had fun heating up the copper, then worried about bending it while trying to stitch!

Amazing work well done.
