Here is my challenge. I've never posted to a blog before. It put my first picture (the whole quilt) last. The first two are closeups to show the hidden treasures- lots of sparkly little beads. I started with a one yard piece of hand dyed fabric that I had made. I completed the lower left rectangle first, which is about 9"x11". I had a lot of fabric left and it just kind of grew. I had the skein of green yarn that seemed to go well with it. I knitted the panels to give a textured sash between the blocks and crocheted the border. It is quilted with a satin stitch between the pieces. Altogether it is about 21" x 30".
