Stick a Fork in it!



Finally! It's done! I feel like I've looked at/worked on this one forever. But in truth, it's been in fits and starts. Pat Sloan challenged me over a year ago. And I bit. It's a top and will now reside in "topville" until I get through a few others already in "topville". But I think I know how I want to quilt it, and that may move it up the line. I enjoyed the fussy cutting and the challenge of choosing colors. My next one, yes, I said next one....is going to be Flower Garden. I think I will do a hand applique instead of machine applique. But first a few other projects that have been on hold.....
Thanks for all the inspiration everyone!
