Happy Hippo Art Quilt {postcard size}

I finished a small postcard sized art quilt and am quite happy with the results. 

I first showed you Happy Hippo here.

Next, I added the lettering with embroidery by hand and then set off to add batting and pebble quilt the 'ground.'


And then a border.


And then it still felt as though it needed something.  Do you see the little change here?


Yes, a silly purple pebble.  Delightfully silly.


And here is the final piece.  It measures 4x6.  And I had so much fun making it!!



I am joining in on the fun over at Fabric Tuesday!

Fresh Poppy Design


And lastly, puppy pictures -- best way to start the week!!  Here is Sammy on a recent car trip.  And no, I wasn't driving and taking photos.  She has been a good puppy passenger so far!!
