Quilty Embellishment Day (QED) For October

I've been working on my Expanding Possibilities quilt for a long time now. One of the things that is taking so much time is the layers of embellishment. It started with the design.

Dimensional flying geese

Machine embroidery (Urban Threads desig)

More machine embroidery (Urban Threads desig)

Quilting - adding words to the quilt.
Layers of embellishment = layers of love!

Now it's time to link up  and show us your fabulous creations this month! Here are some guidelines

First of all what is Quilty = quilts (big or small), fabric purses, totes, pouches...pretty much stuff you make with fabric as a base!

Second, what is
Embellishment = anything that adds design interest to the piece. Examples (this is just a short list I could think of, but I know there are many more...)
