This was made for Thimbles71 in the most recent incarnation of the Mini Art Quilt Swap (Round Cool.  Thimbles mentioned liking black & white color palettes, and listed "flowers, poppies, dandelions, etc" as one of her themes.  The quilt measures 12.5" x 12.5".  The background is a fat quarter I found at my local quilt shop, with grey text & equations written out on it.  The stems are made from ribbon, and the leaves are appliqued from scraps of previous quilts.  I used free motion quilting to stipple the background, and to do the stalks between the seeds and the fluff, before adding seed beads for the seeds, and tied bits of embroidery floss for the fluff.  The phrase, "Some see a weed, others a wish" was made of charms from my stash, mostly letters, with a magic wand standing in for the I in wish.  I forgot to get a shot of the back, but it is a bright green modern plaid that I just couldn't resist, and a rod pocket made of the yellow binding fabric, for a pop of color.

Every little bit of this is awesome. I especially love the beautiful green leaves in various prints and the beaded flower centres. I see wishes!

Love the imagery, love the quote, and love the little magic wand standing in for the "i" in "wish"!

I love the dandelion quilt a lot! You captured its form perfectly and I love the seeds in the wind. The background fabric is perfect.
Love the quote and that you made it with charms. Great quilt, really!  Smiley

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
