The great stuff you find in fabric piles

I cleaned out my studio last week...trying to get a little more order in my crazy life!
I found quite a few quilt tops ready to be quilted...I found quite a few bundles of blocks waiting to become finished tops... And I found this top....I have been working on it off and on for a year now. I started with appliqueing the solid background. It is my representation of the four seasons, beginning with Spring (birth) at the top and working down to Winter (Death) at the bottom. I have added some embroidery and ribbon and other things to it here and there. I plan to add photos of Women who have been an important part of my life...Mom, Grandmas, etc.
This project is definitely at the top of my list to be finished for 2010!
