Sunset by Ngaire

A great way to end what has been an interesting and challenging journey for the last few years.
Thank you Anna for including me in this group even though the thought was rather scarey and thank you everyone else for sharing your lovely work with us all.

Amish Bars by Ngaire

The Amish quilting has always interested me with their use of bold colours so I have enjoyed doing this challenge. I hope to be able to see more of their work when we visit some of the Amish country later in the year.
Thank you Judy.

At the End of a Day from Judith

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.
Cheers Judith

Penguins at Dusk for Anna

Hi Anna
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.

Amish Quilter in Redwork for Judith

Hi Judith
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

'My Country' for Lynn

Thank you for your challenge Lynn, I had many different thoughts about this one and finally settled for a 'waving flag' across the map of Australia. Hope you enjoy your little quilt they certainly look great on the blog.
cheers from Lorraine

Mini Modern for Pam

I love the 'modern' quilt movement we see so much of these days, lots of bright fresh colours used and interesting yet simple quilting to compliment the projects.
Thank you for your interesting challenge.
