I want to keep this! - fleur de lis applique

I made this sweet little wall hanging as a Christmas gift for a friend.  I had sooo much fun quilting this up tonight, and now I want to keep it.  My friend is a non-quilter, and I am not so sure she really understands the art.  I don't know if she appreciates it. I am sure she would appreciate it more than a box of chocolates, but I hope she doesn't ask me what she should do with it.  Ugh!  





This was my very first applique attempt.  It was not hard at all.  I just fused it, though.  Then I zig-zagged around the edges.  One of these days I will try some needle turn, but not at on something like  this.

So, my dilemma is...  do I give her a store bought gift, or some accented flour sack towels (useful), or do I give her this?
 I will stitch a black binding on  this.

Geesh, that is a tough one.........I'd find it to hard to hand over to someone this heirloom piece, .... It's beautiful.

I'm finding more and more I would say KEEP IT! Or quick, maybe work up a 2nd one?! It's lovely but we can't keep it all... or can we?

This is beautiful. I bet you can whip up something quick for her and keep this one for yourself ;).
