Hi Anna, at last it's no longer an UFO, enjoy.
Pen and ink meets stitch in this little quilt, a technique I’ve wanted to explore for some time, not new, I know, but new to me, also it’s another use for a stencil. At first I tried, unsuccessfully, to use the stencil as a stamp and finally solved the problem by outlining the positive, then adding pen and ink and stitch.
Thank you Anna for once again testing me, as always I’ve enjoyed the challenge even though this time the result has been a long time coming.
To everyone my very best wishes I know I will miss the regular contact with you all, the challenges, visiting the blog to see the latest additions, it has been a wonderful six years.

What a fitting theme for the last of our challenges, well done.
When I thought of sunset I remembered seeing the 'Little Penguins' or sometimes called 'Fairy Penguins' coming in from a days fishing at sea, to find and feed their babies. The noise of the babies calling was something I will always remember.
Thanks for the theme.
thank you for your challenge - certainly different theme, so I chose to make mine in redwork depicting an Amish quilter.
I have tried to show the simplicity of Amish life, although having been to an Amish home in Intercourse, noticed that it was anything but sparse. Very grand and welcoming it was.
All the best for your future quilting, from Lorraine
