Eau De Parfum!

Here is the finished product . . . the perfume bottle quilt I made for my cousin. It has 120 perfume bottles, each different, set in an attic window setting. This was taken at Guild the night before I flew to Atlanta, to give it to Diane. It looks great in her bedroom which is a lovely coral color. She has gold pillow shams and is going to put up new white sheers at the windows, and a gold dust ruffle on the bed. I made one additional block for the back, reversing the colors and used it as a label.

More later!

What a breathtaking quilt! I do hope you will share a close up or two...

As far as the vintage FHA thimble... I have no idea if it was purely promotional (handed out at the annual convention) or if they were merit-based. Let me know if you ever find out.
