Free Style Cobblestone Label Block & Day 179 A Block A Day Challenge

No automatic alt text available.
Surprisingly, I only had one Free Style Cobblestone Block 
remaining after piecing the top of my queen sized bed quilt. 
So, for Day 179 A Block A Day Challenge, 
I hand appliqued it to the back for the label.
 It will be further secured as I continue to hand quilt the remaining row.

"Mountain Song" - Day 153 A Block A Day Challenge

Image may contain: indoor
"Morning Song", Purple Bird Quilted Fine Art Wall Hanging began as a challenge by artist, 
Lorie Hancock McCown to use this light green fabric.
 I took the challenge although It was a bit trickier than I first realized.
 I completed the top, sans the bird quilt overlay, which was part of one of my
 April Art Daily compositions where I did a bird a day
Later, I chose to add the bird to the challenge collage 
and finish the edges in fushia. Notice the hand embroidery detail 
that enhances this deep purple, green and hand dyed fabric sections. 
Tulle and organza add a bit of whimsy.
Measuring 28: X 25" and machine signed by artist.
$340 - Available in my Etsy Shop

I like to intersperse circular spirals when the batik 
Free Style Cobblestone Block is squarish. Day 153 A Block A Day Challenge
 has blue hand quilting and for the green coping strip, purple quilted squiggles.
