Top is Done

The top is done.  It is called a true lovers knot.  It's kind of a Celtic knot style.  Now I have been thinking on it and have NO ideas of how to quilt it.  So...H-E-L-P!!  I need some ideas...soon.  I thought this could be a pillow, but it is too big, so a wall hanging then. Let me know what ya'll think.  Thanks.

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.

A quickie

Just a quick post to say the wedding is past and all went well.  Now I have finally started my quilt and it is going together beautifully.  I thought the fabric choice would be tough, but after I pulled out one, I opened a drawer and the other one was right there and they are perfect together.  I will post a picture soon, once the top is done.  It's small, so shouldn't take too long.  Hope everyone else's is going well.
