The piece is called "Elisabeth's Legacy". It is a Madeira embroidered table runner, placed on Radiance fabric, and quilted. It is named after Elizabeth Porter, who introduced embroidery to the women on Madeira, thus establishing a cottage industry that became the highest form embroidered table and bed linens.

I do dearly love this piece - I have such respect for the skills of the original embroiderer, and tried to enhance them with my own work.
I'll be entering it in the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival - wish me luck!
For now, I think I'll just keep looking at it!!
