It's sewn...............

More storms and tornado warnings a couple miles south last night so I had the machine unplugged again for awhile.  8/10 of an inch of rain and lots of wind.

I finished sewing this together by 11p.m. and then pressed it and did a row of stay-stitching around the edge.

When it is sewn together I can really tell if it is successful.  When it is just pieces on the design wall I have my doubts.  I'll call this one a success!  It is 44" x 64".  I will be posting a couple collages of the progress as I worked on this one.

I agree a success is right. Really looks great. The mall that is about 5 miles from us was hit with straight line winds and roof collapsed. We could hear the wind above us. 2.1 inches of rain in less than 60 minutes. Glad you didn't get any damage. Chris

Our thunderstorms rolled in about 3 am and a bit now at 6. The quilt reminds me of a summer garden with all its rich and sun dappled flowers.

it looks a success to me - gorgeous colors, I was keeping track of the storms yesterday as they were heading to my daughter's area in WI, she said the worst missed them but sent a photo of a tree down across the street from them, the worst they had was the portable basketball hoop tipped over and a leaning tree (small) leaned some more

I agree! We had storms Saturday evening and lost power for a few hours. Chris loved watching the storm and I had an audio book so we "survived"!

Wanda, have you ever made one with a dark center, that gets lighter toward the outer edges? Just wondering. Love your blog!

Wanda, I ran the idea we discussed past a couple people from church. Both preferred this piece over the cobblestone cross and liked the color wash "as is."
