Well, it’s done. My fingers ache from stitching, and I am pleased enough for a first effort. I had gotten a bit muddled between what was supposed to be tacked and what was supposed to be quilted as the final step, so I made extra work for myself, blind tacking the back in places where I had already quilted the front. Live and learn.

I thought of adding beads, but that didn’t seem to suit. What do you think about coins and bells?
