Materials/Techniques: All layers are made of cotton fabric, including the batting and thread.

Artist Statement: First of all this little quilt is one I found and obtained permission to use as a guide for this little quilt from Emily Senuta's webpage banner. I changed the design to fit the December QAMC theme of "Ovals". There are three layers of fabrics; the off-white background with the pineapple/feathers design stitched in the center. A medium green flowered fabric was cut free hand in waves around the main design, I also cut the stems and leaves at the same time. The dark green fabric was cut the same way. After each layer I sewed around the curves to hold all in place. Flowers were embroidered with DMC thread, and seed beads were added for a little sparkle. Using white thread I sewed "rays" coming from the center to the outside edge.
