Currently on the longarm....

It's been a while since I've posted at my blog, so I thought I would show what I currently have on the longarm.  It's a wall hanging that I made back in February at a workshop sponsored by the Arkansas Quilters Guild.  The guild brought in nationally known quilter and teacher Mickey Depre who gave a workshop on making the wall hanging.  It was a lot of fun.  I changed my flower heads up from the ones in her pattern, though, hers were more "whimsical" and I'm not really into whimsy.  These flower heads are based on ones that I saw in a book by Blackbird Designs.  The fabrics are from the "Luna Notte" line (except for the blacks) by 3 Sisters.  I decided to use blacks in the flower stems, petals, and borders since it's such a  dramatic color when used in a quilt work.  Hopefully I'll get this finished in the next day or so and will post a pic of it hanging on the wall!
