Silk and Paper Laminated Prickly Pear

Here’s the Prickly Pear silk-and-paper laminated piece, this is the same size as the poppy one I did recently, 19″ x 23″:

I finished quilting it last night; I just outlined the prickly pear and stippled the borders. Unfortunately, the quilting doesn’t really show up in the photo below:

It was cold and rainy here today (the high temp was 57 degrees, and the high was at 1:00 AM); hard to believe it was 95 degrees just a week ago or less. Tomorrow with the clear weather I hope to haul out the mitre saw and try making a frame for this piece. We’ll see!
