    Wonky UFO

    Started a table runner to remember our vacation by the ocean. Decided wonky would be appropriate so I gave it a try. Colors represent all the colors of the ocean and sky. Trim and binding will probably be off-whites and/or beiges to represent the sand and clouds. This was really hard; thank God there are no quilt police!

    I got a sewing machine for my husband. Good trade, huh!?!

    Really pretty, Nancy! I love the irregular "wonkyness"... makes me think of ocean waves. Nice job!

      Thanks Deb. I think the irregular died (don't know what it's really called) fabric and the wonky seams really make it look like water. I was hoping it would work out that way. Hey, sometimes things actually go right....even in my life!!! LOL

        I love those colors - and it does look like waves and ocean and ohhhh - now I really want to leave home and go there! Especially since we are going to get one more blast of rain/snow!

          Very nice, definitely makes me think ocean. I wouldn't know where to begin piecing that together!
          To quilt or not to quilt?.....what a ridiculous question!

              Beautiful table runner, Nancy... it does indeed make me think of ocean waters...
              You know you've had too much coffee when you can thread a sewing machine while it's running.

                  It may have been hard, Nancy, but you've come shining through. The color choices are perfect.

                    I think it's very nice. The heck with the quilt police. . . . they only count when you're entering a contest. When it's for yourself or your family or friends, it's what you like. You did great. Colors are great and I find that the curves are really beautiful and fairly easy to do.

                      Ooooh - love that! The wonkiness - the blues - etc. Perfect wave to resemble the ocean.
