Flowers are machine appliqued, then hand quilted around in brown thread. In between fabric flowers, other smaller flower motifs are hand quilted in white thread.
Tried to get a good picture of the back to show the hand quilting, but apparently couldn't hold still.

Cages are hand embroidered with floss. Birds are machine applique'd. Machine quilted with swirls all over, except I traced around each bird and around each cage.

Practicing another quilting pattern on a doll quilt.
Front is randomly pieced.
Practiced freezer paper pieceing this flower. Good method, but I this doll quilt is pretty ugly. And my photo assistant doesn't smooth things out well.

Last week I had this conversation with my co-teacher (another adult in a co-teach class for special education students--the ones that get their tests read to them, get extra time on tests, have ADHD, are emotionally disturbed, have dyslexia, etc etc.)

The other day we were driving and listening to music when Rage's song "Killing in the Name" came on. Towards the end of the song Crystal looked at me and instead of asking to change the song stated "This could have been my childhood theme song"
Unfortunately I think it extended past childhood.
Operation train wife = fail.
