Small quilt

I belong to a couple of online groups and one of them is Learning Fibre Arts or learningfa. Miriam, a quilter from Ireland who was here in Ontario last fall to give a workshop, kindly did an online workshop for those of us who were interested. The workshop was called Irish Landcape and here's my completed quilt.

The whole quilt is raw edged applique. You were encouraged to place the fabrics of your choice randomly. Different weights of fabrics could be used - silk, satin, corduroy, cotton, laces, threads, etc. It was all to be done very freely. I had some netting that I scrunched up and I also took a bunch of threads and encased them under some netting in the lower right. It was a lot of fun and I may just do another one in the future. Right now I am a bit pressed for time.

Note: Miriam is the same lady who designed the Emma's Trees as it is named for her daughter.
