The colors are so much warmer in real life! I took this in mid morning on my dining room table so maybe that accounts for the poor coloring.
I love a pieced backing!
A little closeup of the quilting. I stitched around each block and the shamrock shape and stem. I'm calling this a tabletopper since I did not put a hanger on it. It was really fun to make--and hard to give away! Especially since green is my favorite color. My cubicle-mate won this and she promptly put it back up on the divider between our desks. Congratulations, Yadi!
This is the one I made for myself--I finished it this afternoon and took photos. The colors are much truer in these shots.
I told the story of the little stand here. Now I have three things to hang on it. The other is a pumpkin block for fall and I have a Christmas tree block I also have plans for.
I like how the white quilting looks kind of like lace on the back.
I had a lot of fun doing different free motion quilting in all the different sections.
Okay, so that's ONE March goal crossed off...er, how many days left in the month now?
