I have worked on this quilt a long time.  It is 50" x 50" with a facing rather than a binding.  All fabrics are hand dyed.   The flower petals and leaves are each hand dyed then overpainted with fabric paint to create the shadows and details.   There is a lot of free motion quilting with triobular poly thread on the flowers and leaves and varigated cotton for the background stippling.
