    Envy Echoed

    Here is my 12 x 12 challenge for the month of March. Our letters were E,F,G.....First, with all this emphesis of going green I decided to use the back of a silk blouse that I had stained on the front.....so...Fabricated on the finest of fabrics, this freemotion feathered flower is echoed on a grid of green. Then to keep it going a little further I could mention the part of it being framed in green as well.....the funny thing is that I added a special little twist and so far no one has found it...or..if they have no one has mentioned it. It was deliberate and it added two more words using the letter "F" and it is visible in the picture.....was "Feeling Generous"...lol can anyone find the clue?

    I still can't find the 4 & 5 but you missed a GIANT G!! It's a GINGKO leaf!!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Tricky, tricky, I never would have noticed it had you not mentioned it. I love how you had so much fun with this challenge and your quilting is just beautiful.
