Really appreciate it!

Note: Voting continues through Monday night. Thanks for all the support!
Do you check out the wonderful quilts submitted each week to the Quilting Gallery's weekly themed contest? 
This week the theme is wall hangings and I submitted my 'A field of daisies' quilt. 
It measures 30" x 23" and hangs in my sewing room. 

I made this quilt in 2002 at a retreat to learn Landscape quilting. We were to bring a picture to inspire us. Here is my inspiration. Photo taken by my daughter for her HS photo class.
I tried to capture the field of daisies.
All the pieces were fussy cut and glued to the blue background fabric. It was FMQ with monofilament and some additional decorative threads. Click on photos to see a close up. I let the daisies spill over the frame to give it a 3D feel. I sure would really appreciate your vote. You can vote over at Quilting Gallery here from Friday through Sunday.
