Sometimes it's the little, seemingly simple projects that become quite challenging. The goal was to retain the happy feeling of the colorful fun circular motifs, without resorting to taking the easy way out and simply make it a whole cloth piece. Incorporating two rows of polka dot scraps, adding hand embroidery and finally machine quilting with long black dashes seemed to fill that intention.
Okay I admit.....my fingers were itching to add beads.....but fearing that would add too much clutter I restrained myself!
