Challenge quilt




Well I finished the top for my challenge. Still have to quilt and embellish it but I think it turned out nice. I have shown two close ups too. One of the fairy and one to show the flower and leaves. I am going to add some rounds of bumpy yarn to the middle of the sunflowers. Not too much as the centers are part of the challenge fabric. Also going to add beads and such to the buttlerflies, fairy and ladybugs. I made the fairy wings out of Angelina fibers. The quilt is 37" x 31". We couldn't make it any larger than 40" x 40" and it had to at least be 30" x 30".
