Design Wall Monday

WahHoo for a UFO Finish!
Judy L drew #8 for the March UFO and I finally have it finished.
Jamestown Landing may well be my new favorite quilt.
I worked hard to get if quilted last week and the binding on
so  could take it with me to the beach to finish.
I wanted to use our fence for picture.
I really wanted to take it down to the beach but never did.

I am a scrap addict and use them whenever and where ever I can.
I love a scrappy back and a scrappy binding.

After finishing the binding,
I pulled out my little embroidery project to work on.
As I'm stitching, I start thinking about the needle.
It's like sewing with a nail!
I am so used to my thin #10 needles. 
So I had to do a comparison picture. 

We are home now for a couple weeks so have plans to get another quilt or 2 finished.
Next week it's retreat weekend, then back to the beach. 

Check out all the cool design walls at Small Quilts and Doll Quilts Design Wall Monday.

Such a beautiful finish. Congrats! I loved your comment about the needle feels like sewing with a nail. I had a needle that felt like that, too, and finally threw it out.

Your Jamestown Landing quilt is beautiful. I hope to make one someday. Who knows, it might be my next project. I don't have a project started at the moment, finished my last one on Saturday. Thanks for sharing your quilts and your other adventures.

Great job! I love Jamestown Landing, and have seen a friend's version in person. I would love to make my own, and maybe will someday - when I get all of these UFO's finished. Thanks for linking with Design Wall Monday, Judy.
