One of the UFOs I brought with me in the move to AZ from STL was this one. The top was finished in late 2019. You can see it here; this photo of it with the sun glowing through is one of my all-time favorites.
I finally finished this quilt. I quilted it on PCQ's long arm with a meander in the center and a leafy vine in the border. Let's just say I need a lot more practice trying to make consistent motifs like leaves freehand on the long arm.
The top was pieced together race-style using 1-1/2" wide cut strips, with the black and white stoppers to break them up. The stoppers fell wherever they landed in the race construction process, like bits of confetti. This was a fun top to make because I had no idea how it would turn out so there was no way to predict what it would look like.
The backing is a hot pink batik and I used pink thread for the quilting. The quilt finished about 51 x 61" and I'll donate it via PCQ to the local family services agency.
I love this quilt if I do say so myself. I'm inspired to make another strippy race-style quilt, and I have a lot of already cut strips to get me started.
