UFO #8 finished

Binding in process this morning. Note: a bit of the black and white batik backing is showing down near the floor.

Catherine Martin's excellent idea for the quilting pattern.

The whole thing, 66" X 96", hanging on the kitchen wall before I took a walk through the meadow. The SUNSHINE outdoors was its own thrill, but it was also fun to see this through the kitchen window as I returned to the house.

This was my idea for the Black and White Challenge , which was to include one other color. And the simple, simple plan for a zig-zag [two-rail fence] came from Amandajean at http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com .

This was finished well before dinner, so I looked through my cabinet of UFOs for some pineapple appliques already sewn together that Dianne gave me "to do something with". I found it. But I also found these blocks which leapt into my hands. They are now put together into a baby quilt, and I have started quilting.

Christmas stocking candy--a big pile like Halloween!

Love your new quilt! Love the quilting pattern, a simple but effective idea. You've had such a productive year, I'm just amazed at how much you finish! Do you have a tally of how many projects you've completed?

Your zigzag quilt is amazing...I think a teenager would love it! Anyone would, of course, but especially a teenager:)
