Folk Art Fantasy finish

A finish!  It is about 24 x 36 and was started in a class with Karen Kay Buckley.  It is her pattern.  I finished the appliqué last week and hand quilted around the applique and the diamond pattern in the background.  I even labeled it and put a sleeve on the back.  It also reminded me how much I liked to hand quilt, so even though I did another appliquéd tropical flower yesterday, I have re-started hand quilting the full-size green/white appliqué quilt that I started last year.  Hopefully it will be done in time for the guild quilt show next April.  This was a fun project and easily do-able by anyone, so it was a great class project.
