Ostrich Challenge


Here is my center block for the Ostrich Challenge. It's a leftover block from a quilt I made by Karen Stone and is 18" square. I hope that's not too big. It's been on my design wall for 1 1/2 years, and I think it's aged long enough and it told me it didn't want to be a pillow. Thanks Kim for letting me join in on the fun!

PS..was still having trouble loading pictures and I decided to download Firefox's browser and try it--voila!

That is beautiful! It isn't too big if you say it isnt too big - it is your quilt. I can't wait to see what you do with it.

ohh, nice center!

Is that machine applique or turned edge? I'd cringe at trying to turn all those curves under and keep the line looking as smooth as you have. :)
