My quilting friends are sort of equally split on this one. The theme for the Quilt Show was chosen last fall, "Quilts in the Garden", or maybe its "Quilting in the Garden" - anyway it is something to do with "garden". So I made this quilt to illustrate the theme and use up some gradated Fossil Fern fabric I had hanging around. It just sort of evolved as I went along. I named it "Fried Egg Flowers and Funky Butterflies," since I couldn't think of anything clever. The pattern on which it is loosely based is called "La Vie En Rose", which seems a little pretentious for what is basically a folk-art pattern. I added the butterflies on a whim. Again, Nicole quilted it for me, and I do like the free-hand quilting along the outside border.
