Circles of Life - This was a commission from co-workers for a wedding gift. They wanted it queen-size, from the medallion size, so I added the last round of vine and tulips. I also added the bluebirds. I had to convince them to go for a bit of color from the original neutral design, but not too much. It is all hand appliqued using freezer paper under and turned stems, no fusibles.
The center LeMoyne Star is machine pieced and was fussy cut. I left out the center circle since the seams met perfectly. (Angel on my shoulder that day!)
The machine quilting was done on a long arm and she did a beautiful label on the front with the names of the bride and groom.
