slowly making progress finishing this emb quilt . have decided fantasia would be a good title. loved that movie and the fantasy animals and gardens in the movie remind me of this quilt. struggling hand sewing all the stries hiding the seams--plus the binding.mr. blackie is enjoying it!! it is very foggy but just above freezing so the ice is slowly going away.

i hand emb this piece probably has taken 5 years to do the center. i recycled flannel bed sheets from the nursing home and dyed them. wanting to use them i pieced four together, layered with batting and did minimal machine quilting to hold them together. finally trying to get this done.
