Skipping Stones

Skipping Stones Art QuiltAs I completed the new art quilt today, I decided to call it Skipping Stones. It is far more evocative of skipping stones than a thousand stars. So I'll save that other name for another piece. The finished size is 23" high by 27.5" wide.

This is pretty much all I did today -- completed the last few sections of machine quilting, trimmed it up and hand stitched the border. Then a friend came for tea, so I'll put on the hanging sleeve tomorrow.

I'm really happy with Skipping Stones, especially all the wonderful machine quilting, which was great fun, although exhausting work.
