In the Garden

Wow, I'm really enjoying the crayon batik ... big stitch quilting with #12 black pearl cotton.
I've finished stitching around most of the shapes.  I need to do something in the background and may switch to yellow thread so it doesn't overwhelm the rest.  I wish the detail was easier to see.  Here is a close-up taken right after I started.
The March 3 deadline for the "Walk in My Garden" challenge is coming SOON.  I've made progress tonight and may be ready to start quilting soon.
The garden quilt will be machine quilted, then I will add various embellishments like the felted flower centers, beads and yarn.
