    Finally finished after advice from quilting board members

    I asked QB members for advice last spring on this little quilt. I was having difficulty getting the sunshine to look just right. So thanks to all that commented and helped me get this together. I drew the center critters and butterflies, then painted them with inktense pencils. I then appliqued them on to the watercolor background. This quilt measures about 36"x36".
    I made it for my quilt groups challenge for 2017. Each member drew a letter out of a hat, then we had to incorporate at least 3 things that started with that letter into our quilt. My letter was R so I have a rabbit in a royal blue coat, a racoon and a rat. Thanks for looking and thanks again to all the QB members that made suggestions to me last spring!

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    That is so very cute. The sunshine came out great. I imagine it in a little girl's room.

    Your darling characters are bathed in light and the quilt warms the heart of anyone who sees it.
