This was a challenge piece in several ways. First off I came up with the design for a Challenge from my quilting guild (Pecos Valley Quilters, Roswell, NM) with the theme Holiday/Season and it also works for the Forum Challenge - It's My Nature here :)
It also was a challenge in that I did a lot of Free-Motion quilting on it, at least 80%. I still have a long way to go for the technique, but it did help me a lot.
The Cross it self it made of a piece of light-weight silk that I painted with shaving cream marbling. The rest of the fabrics are commercial fabrics. I thread painted the grasses around the Font.
