    I don't think I've posted a picture of the quilt in my avatar. I made square in a square using some fabric with lilacs & butterflies. Then the applique is from Elanor Burns Magic Vine. After it was quilted, I embroidered veins in the leaves. The finishing touch was sewing on bugle beads in the flowers. I just love it and it is mine!
