Breeze is one of five quilts in my Simply Sensational series using architectural settings to highlight each of our five senses.

The other four senses (sight, hearing, smell, and taste) are located in specific parts of the body, but the sense of touch is found all over. The fresh spring breeze ruffles curtains, book pages and the fur "all over" the rascal on the bed.

For the first time I tried my hand at some beading on the lamp, wall plate, flowers, curtain and pillow. Not every quilt is a candidate for bead embellishment, but when appropriate, beads can enhance an area of a quilt to catch the viewer's attention. The eye is drawn to the sparkle, which invites further inspection. Be sure the embellished areas deserve the extra scrutiny.
