Applique finished

I have finally finished the applique on this piece.  Now, all I have to do is quilt it and bind it and I have a small quilt that depicts my interpretation of the book.  I love the idea of the mythical Phoenix rising from the ashes, good growing out of bad.  That is what I wanted to show with this quilt.  The death of one person leads to a new direction for two people.  I like that idea very much.
I hope the rest of you are enjoying working on your quilts.


  1. I love it. It is beautiful. Hugs

  2. Wonderful interpretation! Who knew Marc was such a rascal. I'm still reading the Lover's Knot that I checked out of the library; I hope to finish it by mid-week so I won't have to renew.

  3. Great small quilt - and lovely applique. Please consider sharing it on Applique Thursday.

    Love the colors, too.

  4. Love the applique design and the book sounds really interesting. Thanks for sharing.
