Dreamcatcher mini quilt finished

I finished it at the end of the last week. Now it will hang in my sewing room...
I quilted it simply, with black thread on the background and variegated green thread on leaves. I didn't want to mess with the dreamcatcher's design as I think that design should be the main focus of this mini, not quilting; you have to look in the right angle to see the quilting on background at all:

Lapacz snow skonczony. Teraz pozostaje mu tylko wiszenie w moim szyciowym pokoju... Pikowalam prosto, czarna nitka w tle, zielona na piorach, zeby nie odciagac wzroku od samego lapacza, bo to w koncu on ma byc w centrum uwagi, nie pikowanie :)  Zeby w ogole zobaczyc pikowanie w tle, trzeba spojrzec pod odpowiednim katem:


Some micro stippling with variegated green thread for the corner patterns:

Wzory w rogach wypikowalam cieniowana zielona nitka:


and a bit of quilting play with the feathers:

I pobawilam sie troche z pikowaniem pior:


I'm completely out of such shades of green fabric. I even had problems to find some piece which would fit as binding. Finished mini measures 15" x 30":

Zuzylam wszelkie zapasy tego odcienia zielonego. Mialam nawet problem, zeby znalezc cos choc troche pasujacego na lamowke. Skonczony mini mierzy 38 cm x 76 cm.

    Have you ever published the pattern for this design? It's been pinned a lot and quite popular from what I can see and i'm sure many people would love to have it. I would like to make it myself for a swap i'm currently in.
