Raiding your stash.

Sorry to be so long getting this next step up; I have been cleaning out closets, organizing, painting and decorating. 

Once you have made your quilt top it's time to play; visit your stash, or go shopping (from the store or your BFFs).

 Lay focal items on your top and take pictures. The camera gives you a better perspective and an easy way to see different options. Walk away. Look at the pictures that you took and make a decision (at least for now).

Now start stitching. I added the embellishments with a beading needle and 6 pound fireline. The embroidery was done with a #20 or 22 chenille needle and DMC perle cotton #8 and YLI Perle Crown Rayon.
