A Piece a Week 2013 Challenge: Week 1

**2013 Challenge**

Rita at is hosting a facebook page with a new challenge of completing one project a week.  So one of my New Years resolutions is to give myself more time for my artwork... this fit right in.  She has links to the facebook page and the flickr group she set up for the challenge on her blog.  Already lots of beautiful work posted.  Check it out!


 Below:  This is my Week 1 Project. It serves a dual purpose. Not only will be my first project of the challenge but is for a Fabric ATC swap I am hosting on Swap-Bot. I used a very festive Mardi Gras print and did some free motion quilting in gold thread. The applique is a piece of lace, a translucent plastic butterfly attached with gold seed beads. The black trim also attached with seed beads and foil flowers with, again the gold seed beads as the centers. This is only my second fabric ATC and I was very pleased with the very festive look to start out the new year.
