It was a project inspired by the work of Janet Bolton,
who you can learn more about on her website, , or you can google her name and look at images of her work, such as this one,
she is amazing!
Any how, a few of us had gotten together and started little applique pictures in her style.
I had gotten quite far with it, and I liked parts of the picture, such as this little corner,
I decided to sew it into a pencil case. in order to do that, I had to finish a few more petals, and add some lines of quilting to the beige area of background.
