On a quick pieced background, appliqued palm fronds from many upholstery and clothing fabrics are created 3D.  All of the dates are hand beaded over embroidery stitches of various kinds.  The hand quilting was done with a layer of needlepoint canvas between the front and back.  Extensive handwork in raw edge 3D applique, embroidery, beading, and quilting.  Beads are glass and stone beads.

This is so unique,  what a great idea using the beads for the dates.

This piece is so beautifully done.  I love how you did the palm leaves and added that very colourful piece of fabric under the leaves.  Really cool!
