Live Your Brightest Life - Part 2

Crafting a Life presents - Live Your Brightest Life: A Tribute to Yvonne Porcella. Quilting in the Garden, September 23-25 at Alden Lane Nursery in Livermore, California.  Pokey Bolton, curator. Here is the link to her ask. My plan was to make a quilt about Yvonne and me, combining our two styles. 18x26 vertical format
I changed out the lime green neck for black and white safety pin fabric, which is more me

Added the red dog jumping between the houses, which is for Yvonne

Let the free motion machine quilting begin.  My FMQing is very organic

The finished piece and I am very happy with the results.  YP and me.  A loving tribute to her and our friendship.
