Hidden Stitches Musical Moments

Welcome to some of my Hidden Stitches applique group.  I joined this group shortly after moving to Florida last summer and they have been very friendly and inviting and even LET me be the leader of their group:)) 
Recently the challenge of Musical Moments was put forth to the group: Be inspired by a song title or line from a song and it couldn't be more than an 80" perimeter (which leaves a lot of leeway:).
Here is what talent sung out:)
Liz M's  "I'll Fly Away", a hymm.
Her eagle's name is Spirit.
  Her wing applique uses different fabrics
for a wonderfully realistic feel.

                                               Barbara H's "There's a Hole in the Bucket"
                               There really is a hole too with a drop of water coming out:)
 Carol C did a Beatles Tribute and my pictures won't do it justice.  There is so much handwork
detailing each song and then there are more titles embroidered in the pink border.

 Here Carol holds up Barb L's "Daisy Daisy".
The reverse applique here is great because of the
pieced background.  The butterfly is 3D as well.

 Diane D's "Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend"
Simple, Sweet, and great graphically.

 Pat O's
"Teddy Bear"

We had an Elvis thing going here and lots of reminiscencing!  Pat had the cutest album pin that was perfect for the bear's belly. 
Lynn T's Elvis Tribute and I am pretty sure the look on her face
says it all about how Elvis made her feel:)))
 Great appliques representing different songs and don't forget those "Blue Suede Shoes" !

 Marva brought us another eagle for "Wind Beneath My Wings".  This is another great technique for adding texture and movement to an applique-choose a wonderful print!  

Lynn W's "Tea for Two"
Paper piecing and the tea bags are adorable!

Carol Q's rendition of "Daisy Daisy"  So sweet!

Great pictures, and it looks like a wonderful group, BUT - where's a picture of your quilt? Or did I just miss it?
