Daisy Quilt Table Topper ~ Finished

hey there everyone ~

i finished this quilted piece awhile ago now; gave it as a wedding gift, and it's was just one of those days where the lighting was just not bright.  {so it goes!}
but that did not dim my joy in creating it, nor in the giving! it was definitely inspired color-wise by this couple's dishes which are from the 'fiesta' dinnerware line!
i used a linoleum block i cut a couple summers ago {above}...  a daisy-themed block i still love alot.  i think i may need to have a printing session with it again {very soon} and renew my love affair with painting, stamping & fabric!
no surprise ~ i went for bright colors to frame it, selecting fun prints from my batik stash, and because of their bright tones, and patterns, the free motion quilting i put on it is quite simple, where the thread blends in, but adds a pretty textural interest to the piece.  my quilting motifs were straight line, cross-hatching, swirls, pebbles, and undulating lines in the petals where i changed out the colors of threads a couple different times as quilted the petals; white for highlighting, and various pinks, as well as variegated turquoise were used.
all set out in patchwork that is deliberately wonky, too.
thanks for stopping in. 

my fingers, heart and mind are itchin' to stitch... and it's time to warm up the 'nina machine ~ very soon, as i have some fabulous new fabric to showcase from the beautiful fabric dyer vicki welsh!

enJOY!

This is so pretty, Leslie!
The oddest thing has been happening. Your blog has not been coming up on my blog roll for ages and I've been wondering about you. Then this morning it appears and I can see you've been posting all along. Very strange!
