Simple Pleasures

I finally got a picture of Simple Pleasures to show you. I think these stitcheries were finished about a year ago, just waiting for me to make this quilt. I was stuck on what fabrics to use since the pattern showed pinks, blues and yellows and I wanted something different. It took me along time of thinking before I decided on the reproductions.
I also didn't add the prairie points the pattern called for in the instructions. I didn't think it was necessary with the fabrics I picked.

Happy Quilting!
