All About the Greenery Through the Trees
Did you enter the Greenery Challenge? Well, I meant to enter but the days came and went and I had a huge Brain Fart and completely lost track of the date. Lucky for me my Modern Guild had a Greenery Challenge, too.

Here we are, All about the greenery.
Through the Trees is the name of my quilt and my inspiration. Walking around on our land and seeing the view through the trees, is always so beautiful. The light that shines through is like the God's light shining down on me. Which makes me feel so blessed. I'm so happy to be here on this beautiful piece of the world. I have never felt so free and inspired. The beauty that surrounds me every day pulls me up through the trees.

Dream Orient Batting (I love this batting)
Ghost Circles surrounded by swirls.
Using the black light on my longarm helps with the precision of my quilting.
The next open area is filled with feathers, swirls, and straight lines.
All Done and ready to go back home for the binding.
