Inevitable
12"x 16"
Hope this one makes you laugh, or at least smile!
I've joined Malka Dubrowsky's mini-Monday quilt group. This is my first entry. I've had this sitting around awhile, unquilted, and this was just the motivation I needed to finish it up. I had fun with the design and the fabrics, but I was so indecisive about the quilting designs. That's when I decided I was thinking too much. Just DO something and move on! Now, that it's done (well, except for the binding), I am finding that I like it, and it was a good learning experience. I used a number of my hand-dyes, hand batiks, and a few commercial fabrics for the table. Enjoy!

Very pretty - as always! I think sometimes we get so hung up that the "free hand" embroidery turns out not so "free". You did well once you let go. Hope it feels good as it looks!

I love the way you quilted around the leaves. It's a great little quilt---so happy looking. Just right for a spring day like today.
