Here is my entry for Le Challenge Challenge 3 - Maritime:
17" x 17"
Paper pieced center design is the Sunshine block from Compass Collection from Quilting on the Square
I added the 1/2 " squares in the border to represent numerous water events
Machine quilted with YLI clear thread
I think it looks very like a festive boat race!
I tried really hard to do a continuous quilting design because I didn't want to stop and start so much. (very hard to quilt clear on white background as is...if you know what I mean)
There is still time for you to link up your idea of Maritime. Come join in the fun.
