I used hand-dyed fabrics for the top, free-motion quilted, then embellished with hand-stitching and seed beads.  This was inspired by a photo I took at an arboretum several years ago.  Finished piece measures 15 5/8" X 16 7/8".  It recently won second place for Wall Hangings at our local county fair.

I really like this one, the shadow is great.  Do you like you could post a close up?

Jezzzzzzzzzzzzz!  I meant, do you think you could post a close up.  I'd like to see the beading.
