At last...a finished piece

Hooray!  I am finally blogging again!  This is a landscape piece I started at QSDS but just couldn't seem to get anywhere with it.  I almost threw it away twice but grabbed it and tucked it inside a drawer.  Now I am really glad I saved it because I really like the end result.  Below is after quilting and before cropping.  After I cropped it, I realized that was what it needed all along.  It is made using my hand dyed fabrics. 

Before cropping and detail below

The hand dyed fabric reminded me of a stream running through a meadow, so I just went with it when I quilted it.  I had an old frame handy and decided I liked it framed.  It is 8"x10" inside an 11"x14" frame.
