In between all of the quilting this weekend I finished another wall section. I wanted to use mirror again so cut some random petal shapes and built the yellow and orange around the for my central petals. The center of the flower is a fused glass cabochon. Then I cut some more mirror to make centers for the dark red petals. I picked these colors because I wanted something bright and these were what I had. After I finished I realized that I had created a Virginia Tech flower! Mom has a VT daylily in her garden. Since I don't do any gardening beyond relentless use of RoundUp, I'll cal this my own VT daylily.
I'm making great progress on the wall since I needed to take frequent quilting breaks.

That daylily came out fantastic. It amazes me to see the clean cuts in the glass.

Another one done! It looks wonderful! I am always surprised with what you come up with as the subjects of each section. I think you have more ideas than wall space!
