Embellish Your Quilt Block with Metallic Thread

I am working on a project for Doug Jacobs, a talented fellow performer from Scarborough Faire Renaissance Festival who plays the character Sir Jameson Rooke, Lord High Mayor of Scarborough. I am truly honored to be trusted with the task of turning many years of performing company T-shirts into a quilt.  The centerpiece of the quilt is the Rooke Coat of Arms, seen in this photo of the Front Gate:

Here is a photo of the Rooke Coat of Arms that I designed from the front gate picture. The background is burgundy velvet and the bricks are quilted with silver thread.
