Quilt no. 27

A Sunny Pre-Hurricane Day in Houston; 13.5x16"

My little quilt is entitled " A Sunny Pre.Hurrican.Day. In. Houston". I used 100% cottons. It's a sunny landscape scene showing a sunny July day in Houston, before the hurricanes begin. I used 2 strands of beads to put some sparkle in the sky. I used pre-made iron on appliques for the little girl in pink, the beetles and the spotted dog on the grassy knowl. The butterfly in the sky is a fussy cut out. The backing is the same as the grass fabric and I've also added hanging sleeves at the corners for the convenience of hanging if desired.
