Working on another pair of wall hangings

I really like working on two or three of the same idea at one time, at least when I am making art pieces. I do not have a name for these yet - Welcome to the Garden? , Birds, Bees and Blossoms?, Togetherness?, Reciprocity?, Living Together? I want to express the idea of flowers, birds and insects all interdependent in a garden.
Applique and embellishments all done, and the machine quilting on the background.
