This is a slightly (deliciously) wonky mini quilt that I embroidered from my own pattern, which was based on an illustration of mine.

I did a raw-edge applique for the girls' clothes, some simple stitching with stem/outline stitch and a modified version of long-and-short stitch, some lazy daisies, and a little bit of special finishing to the yarn ball. My favorite part is the "yarn" wrapped around the girl's arms!



I don't normally do a lot with blue, but lately it's been appealing to me, especially the way it brightens this particular piece.



The blue fabric came from my mom's basement, and the green was something my four-year-old picked up while we were shopping. She chose green for me, since it's my favorite!



Thanks for looking!

I think the hair is my favorite part of this.  This is beautiful!  I love the simplicity of the trees (or rather how it looks simple!) and the whole tone of this piece.  Too fun!

The yarn ball and skein are great, I love those details.  They add such a nice depth to the quilt!

That embroidery design (and I bet the original illustration too) is so pretty and fun!

This is so cute and fun! I, too, love the yarn wrapped around the girl's arms and the fact that they're hanging upside-down is very creative indeed! This piece really makes me smile!
