Thank you for all the nice comments on my quilt! I sent it off to Indiana Heritage Quilt Show yesterday and have my fingers crossed that it gets there in time. We didn't get the 15 inches of snow that were predicted but enough to slow down air and truck travel. I had planned to enter it in Lancaster but didn't get it finished in time, so it is entered in Paducah and I am waiting to hear if it is accepted.
The flowers were not painted, it is all done with thread. Here is a close up that shows that better.
The flowers are done with Superior Masterpiece thread which I love - the colors are so clear and beautiful. The polka dots are french knots.
