finished the cornflower mini quilt

I'm writing this quickly as I must get ready to go for my Wednesday swim at the spa. Last night, I finished stitching down the binding on this little quilt with the cornflowers. It is about 4 by 9 inches which makes it kind of like an elongated postcard size. I'm quite pleased with the corn flowers and I like the bit of iridescent fabric paint that I added to the flowers. I have just added it to my shop.

Also, I put the finishing touches on my 2nd cosmos piece which is destined to be on the front of a friends sewing machine cover. I added a few beads to the centers of the purple flowers and a small patch of embroidered white flowers. She is my swimming friend, so I will take it to give to her today.If you look very carefully, you might see that I free motion quilted my name into the left border.
