Bertie's Easter quilt

Kenny got me this Easter quilt kit a few months ago and I promised myself I wouldn't start it unless I was going to finish it.  I love all the flowers and chicks and spring themes.  It's all ready for quilting now and I plan to do that tomorrow when I am done with my running around.

After I quilt it I will add the button eyes and the hand embroidery for the stems on the flowers.
It was fun to do the machine embroidery on this project.  I used many different stitches to add texture to the appliqués.
 What a fun time I had with this!  Working on it got me through some tough times at work.  It's been a very trying year but I am hopeful that it's in the past and not going to continue.  Sewing is my best therapy!
