Did I have you waiting with baited breath? On pins and needles??
The connection between the gum and UFO #8 is the crazy zebras. I saw the fabric, who knows where, and had to have it because it reminded me of the Fruit Stripe gum I chewed as a child.
You see the resemblance right?
OK, here is the finished quilt.
Dwirling is the quilting pattern I used. The Pajama Quilter (Dawn Rameriz) does a segment on her DVD on dwirling. It's an all over pattern that's more just to give the quilt texture. I thought it could look like the lines you see on a zebra. OK, so it's a little much for this quilt, but it was fun. Practice, practice, practice for me using this pattern. There are areas where I wasn't very consistent with my spacing in between passes. Oh well, I'm rather pleased with my efforts.
And a closer look...
Sissy just couldn't stay out of the picture. She couldn't wait for me to take the quilt off the rail so she could take a little nap on it.
