I made this in one afternoon. Quilted it in a couple hours, and it was on the mantel! It looks pretty next to home, in the same colorways. It reflects us, and reminds us of things we enjoy.

Fun, no pressure, useful for the coming year.
I find art to transport me from anxiety of the election, but when the anxiety won I didn't pressure myself to produce. I did finish the two small leaf quilts this week, and will share them tomorrow on Sewing Saturday.
