The challenge quilt

My entry into the Free Spirit "I am an Artisan" Challenge. What you can't see is the hand embroidery, hand quilting and embellishment on the quilt. The challenge was to create a 60x60" quilt using at least 80% of Kaffe Fassett's Artisan line of fabrics. I'll know if my quilt is juried into the exhibit by the end of June.
 
Since I've been spending most of my time working on this quilt, I've been neglecting the flower beds and housework. Can you guess what I'll be doing with my extra time now?
 
Until next time, Mayleen
