I'd not really given any consideration to entering this competition because I don't feel confident enough of my skills but on Friday I suddenly felt inspired to go for it, and if ever there was a booby prize for sweat and tears I would be in for a chance!
Anyway, with no further ado, this is my entry.
It's made using machine applique (new Flossie Teacakes e-book came in handy), and machine quilted. I quilted the background fabric along the branches and most of the tiny leaves. That was very fiddly and involved turning the needle manually some of the time. The "frame" is partly made out of French General fabric which has that lovely patterned selvedge. It just happened that I could get enough selvedge out of a fat quarter to use for the cream part. This is my second quilt!
I'm not very happy with the photographs, but they will have to do! [Edited to give size 24cm x 32cm approx - a mini mini...)
