As Handicraft Officer for my CWA branch, I have selected this as our group project for next year's competition.  The specification is for a quilted wall hanging no bigger than 12" x 16" and must be worked on by at least 4 members of the branch.  I found a pattern of suitable size (12" x 14") called "Oopsie Daisies" in a magazine.

My input has been to source the fabrics, cut them to size, trace out the embroidery pattern and iron on the applique elements.  Now it's ready to pass on to someone else who will do the embroidery. A third person will join up the fabrics to make the top, then pass it on to someone else to do the quilting, put on the back and finishing off.

The outermost border is the yellow print (white daisies & blue butterflies), then a blue border around and between the 2 embroidered panels with brown hanging tabs and back.

I've included blue and yellow butterfly buttons for the hanging tabs because I can't decide which will look best.  Blue matches the butterflies on the yellow daisy fabric, but the yellow looks nice against the brown fabric they will be stitched to.  I think I'll leave that decision to the person doing the finishing off.
