I did the figure for a Pamela Allen class and then wrote the "soft" haiku about children. Then I finished this piece. It's done with raw-edged machine applique (my first) and a bit of machine quilting.

Children soft and smooth
Life's confusions hard and rough
What about children

Rhoda, Thanks for your comment.
I wrote a different haiku about children being soft maybe two weeks ago--and can't find where I wrote it. So, wrote a new one.

Love the Haiku for this piece... I liked it then and I really like it here, seems so fitting.I have liked the 'tenativeness' you were able to put into that little girl.

What an adorable piece this is! Your child is most definitely 'soft' looking. Very nice!
