Just Waiting On A Friend

I am just about to box this up for a friend's birthday. The center is a piece of my hand dye - with hand embroidery embellished with Shiva paint sticks. Every month, for the longest time, I got 5 inch Bali sample squares & I have been slowly working on a quilt using them all. The piecing around the center is made from leftover scraps from these 5 inch squares ! I just could not throw them out ! I did use a full fat quarter for the backing though - and envelope style with a velcro closure. I have two more of these to finish up . They are 12" X 16".

By the way, I've tagged you for a meme called Seven Things. Hope you don't mind.
