Mariner's Sunset is finished


Some quilts are like a monkey on my back, keeping me from doing new projects, but also scary enough that progress is very sloooow. This one is large, finishing at 72" x 96" and putting on the facing and sleeve by hand took several sports shows and a few editions of NCIS. 

But it is up on a wall, and FOR SALE. I'm hoping for a hotel or some other business with a large space will be interested in it. In the meantime, I'm enjoying the thing, even if it overwhelmed me, particularly the colors and the waves.

And I've started another quilt... more later!

Julie, this idea was sparked by your remark yarons ago that this compass looked like a setting sun... so you should take a bow. Thank you, and thanks Paula.

I'm glad to see you finally got it finished. I think it's wonderful.

Linda says, "congratulations, it's breath taking."

Imagine how soon it would have been finished if you'd had a houseboy.
