But here's the whole mini for you to see now
I had so much fun making this! I had thought about it for
Edit: I was asked what my inspiration was for this piece, and I have to say there was no one single thing. I've been greatly admiring some of Melody Johnson's work for a while, and that had a strong influence on the idea I wanted to communicate. As well, I took a workshop with Judy Farrow a couple of years back and just love the freeform curved piecing that she taught us. Add to that a class with Bonnie Hwang, doing free form leaves - which is what I just recently used to make my leaf place mats - put them together, along with my love of red and neutrals, and there you have it! Lucky for me that in the making of this piece, I still have two of the red on white backgrounds and 4 white on red background curved pieces, and I'll be having more fun soon!
Well, if that wasn't enough excitement, I received my quilt from Tina today, too! Check it out!

But wait, the fun does'ot stop there! Yesterday was also a fabulous mail day as I finally received my DQS10 Swap quilt. Now this little beauty took the long road to get here from Bulgaria, but it was worth the wait! Look!
