Second UFO


Four blocks left from the Strip Twist made the middle of this medallion. Two borders make it about 26" square.

I tried to "freehand" the quilting--"branches" in the colorful part, "pebbles" in the pebbled part, and wavy lines in the ocean part.
What on earth is it good for? This is an odd size--just what they call a "table topper", I guess.
Well, it COULD be a prize for someone for my 300th blog post. If you want your name in the drawing for whatever the give-away is, sign up to be a "Follower" of my blog, over tothe right someplace.
Meanwhile, I am going off the air for a day or two while my computer files are transitioned over to my new iMac. [Hope this all works as easily as they claim!]

You have really been sewing up a storm lately. Good for you!!! The only problem is that you make me look bad for not finishing anything:). Oh well, I will just have to live with it!
I love to see all your projects!

Sara, I enjoy your blog, and I plan to explore more posts under your "labels" list.
Your quilt is liberated in color and has a wonderful optical illusion going for it, because of the quilting stitches and the color placement.It would be fun to hang in a sewing room. I've just signed up to Follow your blog and to get the feed. Thanks,
