One of my fun projects this weekend was making a pretty flower for my office wall:

Quilting is so nice for getting instant results. This took about 2 hours, start to finish, not including the hand quilting. It actually took almost as long to pick out the fabrics as it did to make the quilt!

The background is machine pieced, and the flower and pot are appliqued on with an iron, using handy-dandy fusible interfacing. Now I just have to quilt and mount, and I will have wall art to bring some color to my office.

Sorry for the horrible picture, but we’ve entered the dark months here, and sun has been hard to come by.
