 A wee quilt I made for a swap on Flickr.  (oops,  am I allowed to do that?) 



It is 12 x 14.5 inches and embellished with antique lace and vintage buttons. 

If you want you can read the long story of how my bright cheerful quilt with boats and houses turned into a low volume ode to Valentine's Day.. http://twasbrilligand.blogspot.com/2013/02/time-enough-for-love.html
Or you can just assume that I meant for it to look like this all along.  Some quilts are just trouble.

Thanks Mare.  I think there are at least a dozen different quilts that can be based on the imagery in that fabric.  I'm still cracking up over the goats standing guard quilt in the contest.  I was also totally impressed by the fact that she made an effort to visit every quilt entered and come up with something nice to say.  That was no small feat on her part.

She is a super sweet person! She totally teared up at the guild meeting when everyone had their Madrona Road challenge projects.

I love the background fabrics you have pieced in! Subtle but still gives a little awesome touch.

Beautiful, I love the quilting around the heart, and the buttons. The end result feels perfectly balanced, thanks for sharing.
