I was so happy to see the sun this morning. Didn't realized how much I had missed it. We've been having that rainy spring weather.
Above is a piece that I dug out of the closet while I was trying to clean it out. I can't remember why I made it. I think it might have been because I had some fused fabric I wanted to use up, or maybe I made it for my demonstration at the gallery (I didn't bring it), or maybe it was just for fun to take a break from something else. I'm guessing it's a combination of the first and last reason. Anyway, I had the outline quilting done and the grass. I just needed to fill in the background, which, as you can see, I did.
I was planning to put a binding edge on it, but I didn't have a backing fabric on it and didn't want to hand sew into the batting. So I went for the couched cording around the edge. I didn't have a backing fabric because I liked how the stitching on the back looked. That white is the batting.
