Another Symposium Entry

Here is a portion of another small quilt I finished last night. It is a whole cloth, with a silver (feathered) fern in the middle, and with words stamped with paint or stenciled with gel pen, saying things that I think wearing the silver fern means to New Zealanders'. For example, "To Be The Best", "Family", "Blessing" and others. It is also completely quilted 'to death', but it needed something to make the words stand out. I was also inspired by the website which has quotes from the All Blacks (national rugby team). I stitched the silver fern with silver thread and it shows up beautifully on the black fabric.
I'm struggling to get the 'right' title for it though :-(
