Bubble Forest

 This is called Bubble Forest.  It was the third project that went up on my wall in the beginning of 2010.  It stayed there, or somewhere in the sewing room until December.  I finished it December 23rd.  It's my take on the old adage "You can't see the forest for the trees."  It's a REALLY long twin size....so long I couldn't get the whole thing in one photo, and almost not enough room to lay it out to photograph.
The back, it's a very girly thing to me.  The main fabric has some beautiful pink print on it.  When I was quilting it I started out with pebbling...they looked more like bubbles to me.  It was taking WAY too long, so I started adding in swirls and swerved lines, and straight sun rays.  The colored panels started looking like fruit, so I quilted in cherries and oranges/orange slices, blueberries, etc.  It's not perfect, but I'm proud of it!
