Hidden in Plain Sight

 Well it seems that along with lots of sewing goodies I also brought home a cold which has my brain more than a bit fuzzy but I did want to share this with you.  I have been keeping a keen eye on the SewMamaSew blog since it's quilting month, and  getting all sorts of inspiration!

Last night I was staring at a beautiful Jelly Roll of Free Bird by Moda and this image just popped into my head .. next thing I knew I was 1/2 way done. I hand cut the appliques as sort of an orgaic quiliting expereince. I then did a bit of silly quilting on it and now it's ready to be run through the wash before I decide if it's going to be  hot trivet or a pillow front. 

I am thinking of replicating this as an Embroidery Adventure design... what do you think??
