For today’s May Flower Challenge post, I am cheating! I haven’t managed any flower related creativity, so I am sharing with you this journal quilt I made last May. Looking at the Flickr stats, it was on this very day in May 2011 that I photographed it!

It’s 8.5 x 11 inches and is made using collaged fabrics, machine quilting and hand embroidery.


Don’t forget to check out all the other flowery loveliness over on Lori’s blog!
