When I first saw all of the colors for February, I thought of making a landscape using a design where I could practice working with curves. I didn't stray too far from my first thoughts to the final design.
This is a mini quilt created for the AAQI titled "Empty Path". The piece measures just under 9 x 12 and is machine pieced and hand quilted. I have added small black beads randomly to the shadowed tree. I could not easily determine how to incorporate the red and orange colors. I finally decided to include these colors as mini half square triangles which represent flowers.
I am happy with my curves and the hand stitching, but I have a feeling that this piece just doesn't seem done to me.
I have enjoyed working with these challenges and having the deadline of one month to complete the project. This time restriction has really caused me stretch in many ways. Not only do I need to determine a project that I can complete in a month, but I also need to plan out the project. (Usually I am a person that takes a long time to complete a project because I work on many projects at once!)

Also, its the first of the month so I am linking up to the Small Blog Meet at Lily's Quilts. I always enjoy this meet up because I get a chance to discover new blogs.
