The actual quilt is 21in wide and 18in high, with a total height of 26.5in. Click on any photo to see more detail.
The quilt top is made of black, chocolate and cream velvet and cream satin, and backed with chocolate quilters' cotton. I faced rather than bound it to keep the front simple. The chocolate is easier to see in person
The 25 inchies are made from quilters' fabrics, edged with rayon satin-stitch, quilted and then embellished with a selection of seed and bugle beads, crystals, ribbon, jewellery findings, feature beads and two hand-made tassels.
The inchies are attached using permanent glue (and the hanging ones by beading thread) but although the whole thing is technically washable, it probably would be best not to!
It's very simply quilted, because experimentation on a scrap of the cream velvet showed FMQ was likely to end in a mess - and probably tears! And because it's hard to see anyway!
