Harvest

I made this 8 x 8 inch quiltie for Yvette. The green fabic with the button cluster is a velvet. The brownish red at the bottom is a linen from an old dress. The others are quilting fabrics. It started with this block.
The button cluster. The pumpkin button was a gift from a friend.
I already wrote about my woven trellis pumpkin here.
The needletatting was the last detail I added.
There's a bigger photo of this quiltie at my Flickr-page.

    What is needle tatting? I'd love to know more about it.
