Happy Easter

I know, I know...I am a week late.  Or 51 weeks early.  I knew when this was sent to me that I wouldn't be getting it back home to her before Easter, but that was OK.  She was working on it nearly a year ago before they got relocated from Maine to Alaska!
The circle flowers will get buttons attached to them; that is why I didn't quilt anything on them.  I think it turned out super cute.  I used an ivory Glide on most of it.  It has a sweet and delicate sheen.  Then at the end, I came back over the 2nd tan border and the greens with a variegated Rainbows thread, which also has a slight sheen.  You can see where I added just a subtle hint of this Rainbow thread in the picture below. 
More free-form feathers.  I guess when I find a filler that I like, I use it.  It is pretty here, and this pink background really didn't scream for a more structured feather.  It is a playful and light-hearted look.
 The bunny will also get features added when it goes home.
Only because this is my Easter post...here's a quickie look at our most casual Easter...My daughter likes to gussy herself up, but it's a hopeless lost cause for her brothers. Boys will be boys.
Have a good week.  Not sure I'll post anything until I am back from MQX next weekend.  For those of you within driving distance of New Hampshire...This week is the Machine Quilters Exposition in Manchester, NH.  It is a great machine quilting quilt show.
