    Quilting: Did STID with monofilament at the edge of the "glass" to anchor the mitered corners, then straight stitch with the browns and beiges in the frames.

    Thanks for looking!

    Sorry about the non-flat look. I should have taken a better picture. It's in the mail now, a gift for my brother and sister-in-law.
    You've got a winner! Love the scenery.
