Audrey’s Quilt Story

I have an entry area where I can hang small wallhangings and I’ve made one foris the name I gave this hanging as it is just that...Happy. I decided that I would not go formal with it so instead of precise appliqué, all edges are raw and stitched down with long stitches in contrasting black thread. I chose not to bind it so the outside edges are clipped. In the North Georgia Mountains where I live, summer brings an abundance of bright and beautiful flowers. I used lights for the background so as to emphasize the boldness of the flowers, stems, and leaves. I like the shape used for the background patches as I feel it adds interest vs. using squares. Also the shape of the flowers is totally different from most flower patterns and I feel that gives added interest.
