Patchwork quilt at Counterfeit Kits.

I bought these gold/black squares ages ago and haven't used them until now.The challenge at Counterfeit Kits was to do quilting on a page.

So I've laid out 8 plus a scrap strip then machined them together.Whilst doing this it came to me that we saw many ornate windows in Paris.The left hand one is from the Museum of Decorative Arts and the right one is the dome of L'Opera.
I misted over an ornate frame from Scrapmatts with bronze then added silver rhinestones.The strip of journalling above it was inked with gold.The black lettering is dark but white was too much of a contrast and gold disappeared into the background.
I've uploaded 2 versions of the picture as the scanner stitch wasn't exact so I also photographed the layout.Take your pick!
