Flowers and Birds, Hand Quilted

A close up.
A far away up. It is the biggest thing I have hand quilted. My hands hurt ( I sew with both left and right hands.), but I think if I were more measured about progress, I could do some- a little- every day, and not get hurt.

The embroidery store on my Island has perle cotton in a hundred colors. Very appealing in the little drawers it is sold from.

I have to say I am pretty pleased. I need a better name, though. Suggestions?

I think I like this little quilt the best of all you have done! It really calls to me. If you absolutely had to change the name, you could call it something retro/
classical like "Still Life with Birds." LOL. Seriously, I really like it!

It's called Please Sell This To Me. No really, I'm in love. Quilt perfection.
