One of Those "Gotta-Create-Something" Projects

If you have a shred of creativity in your system,
I'm sure you know the feeling of having to create something like RIGHT NOW!

I was between projects this past summer and needed to quiet that nudging inside me.
I strolled through Pinterest for inspiration, as I often do.
I came across this photo and was instantly inspired:

(not my project above...my inspiration photo)

I turned to my stash and scrap baskets for the perfect fabrics.
I FMQ'd a neutral background with a brick-patterned border on one side.
I made flowers.
I made leaves.
I sewed them down.

 I zig-zagged over green yarn to create swirly vines.

I added cloud-patterned fabric for clouds.
I even cut out a butterfly and added it  to fly near the clouds.

This little project got put on the back burner because something else got in the way of finishing it.
I think it was a quilt.

It's like yelling "SQUIRREL!!!" and off I go chasing a new adventure.

All she needs is a binding. It will get done and I will post updates.
