Adorned by Elaine Parker, 2009. Photo by India Brantley

The featured quilt in the January 3, 2010 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt  is called Adorned,  and it was created by Elaine Parker.
Elaine is known for her exquisite bead work, and this quilt is no exception.  The piece which measures 12 x 12 inches starts with an appliqued lady on an orange background. It was quilted and then adorned with hundreds of beads. The beads are all sewn by hand.

Clearly this is a lady who is comfortable with who she is. She is not shy about expresses her individuality and feels no qualms about standing out in a crowd.
She also appears to be deep in thought. I wonder what such a regal woman thinks about.
