Close-up of Balance Bars panel
Close-up of Team Pursuit panel

Close-up of Tacking Around the Needles panel
A very clever panel full of puns. The Needles are chalk stacks off the
Isle of Wight off the south coast of England and of course
tacking is a sailing term.

Well, I hope you have enjoyed looking at all the pictures of the quilts that took my eye.

Thanks for stopping by.
