Flowers in Hands

Recently I removed some beaded flowers from an old Liz Claiborne sweater.  When thinking of how to use them, I recalled Picasso’s Flowers in Hand.   I partially copied/ partially free-handed the flower position, stems, and hands.
I machine stitched the hands and stems, then added the blue fabric border.  I did the machine quilting next, hand sewing on the beaded flowers after I had the binding done.
The quilt measures 15.75 in X 18 in.
Here you can see the beaded flowers and stitching.
Here is the back.
