UFO's 2014

It was my goal this year to have four UFO's completed.  I did finally stitch down a binding on a really, really, very, very old project...a Robyn Pandolph kit project from the 90's ( Fig.1).  I used the then very popular but grey, valueless colors available (I used to call them no-color, color).  I don't remember when I finished the quilt top.  Diane Anderson of Quilter's Cabin did a wonderful job machine quilting it several years ago and I am now happy to add it to my limited collection of large quilts. 

About 4 years ago, I bought several different striped fabrics, one in two color ways which went into Flower POWER (see post this blog) finished last year.  The second is another under-the-sea quilt.  View From the Bowl II (Fig. 2), was created using silk organza overlay and gesso on own design.  I used the actual striped fabric "as is" in the border at the bottom.  It hangs above the tub in the guest bathroom (Fig. 3).  I think when I finish the third in this striped-fabric series I will have it out of my system...hope so anyway!
