A MINI QUILT

My little ice cream quilt has been gifted and was well received by the recipient. Apparently her daughter really liked it too  : )

Now it's on to another swap quilt

This one started with a picture in my head.  An old stone wall with a painted door


It's not a door unless it opens, so some iron hardware was added


out from the cracks in the wall sprang some little tiny flowers---as tiny flowers often do


and then someone leaned a bicycle against the wall. Perhaps to visit whoever lives behind the door.......

A little embroidery and some top stitching to finish this off and then I will show you the whole thing.

Oooh...so, so sweet! I am loving where your amazingly, creative mind is leading us, Carla. I want to sit awhile against that pretty old stone wall and drink in the fragrance of those pretty flowers....but I might be tempted to pinch that gorgeous bike!

Oooooooa story........I am intrigued! It is kind of like a Bob Ross Painting....as he tells a story about the "happy little squirrel living in the tree."

You are so creative. I want to live behind that door and ride the bike as well....if only I could still get on one....giggle.

Love the bike, I am wondering if it is inspired by my beloved Miss Daisy? :)

You're very creative with your designing. Now, let's hear the story that goes with it. Like a poor, bicydle-pedaling suitor paying a visit to a girl he admires?
