Frolic in the Flowers

Finished!   I love it.   It is a celebration of spring and colour all rolled into one fab little art quilt.
 


 Ricrac and lace make up the sensational stems and my 3D butterflies are having a blast fluttering in the wind.


There is a bit of your steel kitchen scrubber in this flower.  


There are a couple toothpicks peaking out of the centre of a flower like the filament on a flower.  (I did my homework=)

You are so creative Jackie. Who else would put toothpicks on a flower?
Great!

Heehee! Toothpicks, eh? I'll have to try that on my next "artsy" project! LOL I really enjoy looking at this, and I think your students will love it too!

Amazing how the little odd things can sneak their way into a quilt! Doesn't matter where or when you are there is going to be something that one wants to include! Can't say as I ever used toothpicks tho -- a fork and a plastic scrubbie have appeared on one or two of my oddities...
