This week's final Project QUILTING challenge of the season was "Time Is Up." My initial thought was that I wanted to make a sundial quilt. I opted for a minimalist representation and started with a couple improv pieced curves before adding the triangular "dial" by machine appliqué. I used my free-motion quilting to embellish the design with the clock tick marks and the shadow. My mini quilt finished at 9" x 9".
A great big thank you to Kim (Host) and Trish (Challenge Designer) for a fun season of challenges. It was my first time participating, and I'm wiped out, but I'm really glad that I set aside the time and made it a priority to participate in all six weeks. My two favorite quilts that I made for this season's challenges were for the Tuned Into Texture and Brighter the Better challenges.
I'm linking up to Project Quilting Challenge 6. Voting starts at noon Central time on Sunday. You can check out all the entries and vote on your favorites. (Mine is #82.)

The spheres are a nice binding compliment to the idea and design, and the quilting adds just the right amount of detail.
Thank you so much! I lucked out that I had that remnant binding on hand AND I grabbed it to bring to the quilt retreat. :-)
Love the simplicity of this, in keeping with the simple way a sun dial keeps time!
Thank you, Kimberly.
I really like your take on the theme and how the binding echos the design!
I was lucky enough to have a front row seat to watch this lil' beauty come together. I just love your minimalist design as it so captures the essence of both the inspiration and the challenge!!
Aww, thank you so much, Mel! It was a great weekend sewing with you!
This is a wonderful quilt! It's been a pleasure to have you join in the fun and HUGE props for completely all 6 challenges! That's quite a feat!
Thanks. It was so great to have my IRL buddy Mel Beach doing the challenges with me. We even worked side by side at our retreat on the last challenge. Thank you again for hosting!
