Wool Applique Quilt Finish

Sarah's Graduation from College Quilt 

Sarah took this picture on a semester abroad
in Mexico her sophomore year

The minute I saw this picture, I just knew it was going to be a quilt for her graduation!  I started it back in January and finished it in time.  I hand appliqued a variety of turquoise felted wool onto a white felted wool background.  After the scroll was done, I added beads.  I used turquoise and coral beads because she loves these colors and because I thought it would remind her of her trip to Mexico.  After the beads were sewn on, I hand quilted by stippling.  The results were wonderful.  I just love it.  She was surprised!  Below are some better pics of her and the quilt.
