What I'm working on

Here is my latest project.  This is for a challenge by the Georgia Quilt Council to create a quilt celebrating GA.  The waterfall is made from leftovers from my Bald River Falls quilt.  Georgia does have many great waterfalls.  I love the sky on the right.  The quilting really added a lot to enhance the fabric.  I think of this as a sunrise since part of GA in on the Atlantic.

Finally I added the Atlanta skyline.  I also love the funky cityscape fabric.  Got this at Red Hen Fabrics here in Marietta and thanks to Maryann who is great at finding just what I need.  I still have some quilting to do and I plan to face the edges.   Finished size will be about 30" x 20" and I need to have it done in the next 3 weeks. This has been a fun little quilt to work on.

I can hardly believe that I have finished this quilt.  It was actually completed about a month ago but I have been so busy that I have not posted this update.   I am so happy to be done with this and I am really pleased with myself for not giving up on this project. At times it really seemed like I would never get done.

Finished size is 78" x 58" and this is my biggest quilt to date.   Total elapsed time has been 7 months.  I have sent off entries to 2 quilt shows so wish me luck.  For now I will be sticking to smaller projects.....
