New challenge

I have just started a piece for a challenge set by Linda - to  make a small qult (18 inches max), taking inspiration from the local church. As it is renowned for it's decoration, there's lots of scope. I took lots of photos, and settled on using a detail from the font, which looks a lot like quilting.
However, I've designed something that has much more applique than quilting - so far!

Blast from the Past

Today, I have finished a quilt begun in 2006. A 'Round Robin' quilt, which was part of a group challenge inspired by an artist - I chose Gaudi after a visit to Barcelona. The other quilts are finished, as far as I know, only mine took longer than expected. I was very unsure as to how to quilt this one, but eventually made some decisions, and here it is.
