Quilt Update

I am so enjoying making this quilt.  I have most of my  pieces ironed on the the quilt,  just a few more things and then I need to start sewing.   
Her face, hands and shoes are silk screened.   Isn't she a beauty?  I just love her.   I will have to come up with a fun name for her.   Since this is going to be a wall hanging I am adding some fun embellishments.

Thanks for visiting.
See you soon,

Long time no see.  I g0t to play a little this week.   I used some of my new PTI goodies to make a card:
Lots of stickles on  those sunflowers.   Here is a close up of the fence: I used my woodgrain IP on the fence.  Love the way it came out.   I spent several hours yesterday working on my quilt.  I am loving how it is turning out.  I forgot to take a picture, will try to post it ASAP.
