Another One Done

I think I've mentioned before that I am a member of SAQA.  Studio Art Quilt Associates.  I'm not a terribly active member, but I love reading the weekly updates and keeping up with the yahoo group.  Every once in a while they have a call for entry that I know I can do.  The most recent is for the 2017 traveling trunk show.  The deadline is tomorrow.  I started my quilt yesterday.  It needs to measure 10"x7", in portrait setting.

You know how I love ocean views and ocean sunsets, right?  I have lots of strips leftover from one of the Katie PM lessons back in July.  Time to whip out another one!
I finally had a chance to dig into the King Tut variegated threads that I bought during the summer.  ooh aah, nice!  :)
 Once it was quilted, I trimmed it to 7" wide.
 Then I pinned on my sails.
Once they were secure, I cut it to 10", and added binding.
The corners of the binding kind of bother me, so I might have to remove them and try again.  But other than that?  "Sunset Sea" makes me want to sail away. 

And now, it's on to the next thing.  Goals are good!
