Under the Sea & 501

Under the Sea is finished and I am so pleased with it.

060914   (948x1024)The quilt measures 42 1/2″ x 46 1/2″ and is quilted with clear monofilament thread in a meander pattern.  This is my 8th finish for the year.

Once Under the Sea was completed, it was time to decide on the next project.  I was so tempted to start something new – Bonnie Hunter’s Spiderweb, but there are four or five projects in various stages of completion in my sewing room.  There will be no additions to my UFO piles, so some of these need to be sewn before I give myself permission to start something new.

With stern resolution I focused my attention on finishing the 501 quilt top.  This pattern is from Miss Rosie’s Spice of Life Quilts book.

060914A  (650x1024)Four more rows and the middle will be together, then an inner border, a pieced border and an outer border.  My goal is to have this top completed by Friday.

    My rule (not that I follow it) is finish 2 before I can start 1. Under the Sea came out well.
