A rose is a rose...

I was the fortunate recipient of a box of fancy and sheer fabric from mixed media artist, Lisa Qualls. Several of her pieces included stitching and screen printing. Lisa agreed to let me finish some of her tidbits to make donation items.

This cool leaf was the inspiration for a small bag purchased at the "It's in the Bag" auction by a delightful lady in a matching purple dress to hold her Kindle.

A Rose is a Rose... (16.5x16") was almost a top when Lisa gave it to me.
I added the folded red rose and bound the left and bottom edge
 in red to balance the red on the top right.

I backed the sheer screened roses with red felt and machine quilted them with white thread.

I added these red glass discs,

and some red seed beads.

This mini and lots of other handmade art will be in the Denton Quilt Guild silent auction on June 17 from 6:30 to 7:30 at the Center for Visual Arts in Denton, Texas.
