Going Dotty - Finished!

Back on Jan. 2, I posted pictures of the Dotty challenge in my local guild.  This past weekend I quilted it, and added the binding, label, and hanging sleeve.  Tonight I finished the hand stitching.  Here is the finished piece, ready for the unveiling at Wednesday's guild meeting.

Bird on Pine Branch

In my last post I shared pictures of another screen printed mini quilt in process. Here is the (almost) finished Bird on a Pine Branch. Both the pine branch and the bird were printed with thermofax screens made from original photos.  I took the photo of the pine; my friend Elizabeth took the photo of hte bird on her trip to South Africa. All it needs is to have the binding stitched down on the back. I'm happy with how this one turned out.  This is also my entry for the January Color Palette Challenge at Patchwork Times. (The January entries appear at the bottom of the February challenge information.)
