Queen-sized Duvet Cover with swirls ... lots and lots of swirls LOL. There are a few celtic medalions stitched in silver metallic scattered about, but most of them don't show in the picture. My oldest daughter requested this last year and I finally managed to finish it after stopping to work on other projects. Just so you don't have to guess, there are 1,217,105 stitches, and the designs are from my HV Designer Diamond :) I've made tons of projects but this is my first time posting. Thanks for looking!

How beautiful Ashta, is this the front of the doona or the back? I love the design and I am a real fan of black and white. You've done a wonderful job and it must have taken hours to do. I bet your daughter loves it, love Chris

Thanks! The picture is the front ... looking from the bottom. It actually forms a triangle with the top point ending in the middle of the cover and embroidery from side to side completely across the bottom.

These are the first of the Diamond designs I've used, and they stitched beautifully! Although, I have a little to learn about the thread velvet .... next time, I will open them as soon as they are stitched as they weren't "blooming" very well.
