A Nice Surprise!

I had a lovely surprise recently: this quilt, "Leaves That Are Green," won a blue ribbon in its category at the Lowell Quilt Festival in Massachusetts.  The quilt is machine appliqued and machine quilted, and I used some of my own hand-painted fabric in the composition.  I had so much fun working on this piece, and I learned a great deal about color and value during the design stages.  I named the piece after a favorite song of mine by Simon and Garfunkel -- I find their music still inspires me, even after all these years.
