Here's my attempt at a water lily done with Vicki's pattern.
I was totally thrilled with my background fabric and how I was able to manipulate the dots to advantage. I wasn't thrilled with the lily pad fabric I used in the next picture.
I changed one of the pieces for a darker and more yellow green piece of hand dyed to have more contrast. I don't remember changing the other lily pad but it sure looks lighter in the picture below than in the picture above. Sunday morning I left Sharon's around 10:30, after I got all the pieces sewn down. I will be working on the border next.
Sharon continued to work on hers. The pattern was the flame shape in the middle. She added the two circular shapes on top left and mid-right.
By 7:30 pm or so she had her whole piece finished. (On the other hand, I got to celebrate Natalie's BD. And, then had the great joy of driving home down I 95 with a ridiculous amount of traffic!) Here's Sharon's finished piece. Hopefully her finish will motivate me to finish mine this month -- especially since I have finishing this piece as my OMG this month!
Since life is mostly back to normal it is time to come up with goals again.

Put borders on my lily piece from class
Get top of cutting table set up with rulers, trash baskets, scissors and cutters. (Where are all of my cutters???)
Continue piecing R, W & Blue quilt.
Yep, I can't find but one of my rotary cutters. Nor can I find most of my scissors. That's a problem that I'm not really happy with waiting to discover once my shelving arrives. So I may be doing some more box diving this week.
I'm linking up with Monday Makings and Main Crush Monday. Take some time to visit blogs around the world using either (or both) of these linky parties as your starting point. It's lots of fun to be inspired by viewing these blogs. I'm happy to be back to a more normal life although there is a lot still to do. I plan to putter in the studio this afternoon.
