11.1 Notably Numeric Challenge Done

This week I have participated in the challenge presented by Kim of Persimmon Dreams and Trish, the designer.  I have a total finish!!  It has even been bound, per the rules!!

One way:
I started with the top and fusible fleece for batting.  I did the quilting on the purple with just the two layers.  I then added the the backing fabric and did the quilting on the orange and the blanket stitch on my sewing machine all around the letters and arrow.
I added a piece of white fabric to the border and binding to show how narrow the way is...the old "Stairway to Heaven vs. the Highway to Hell".

This snack mat is a gift and this is how I hope it will be used:
Thank you so much, Kim and Trish!!  I had fun with this one!!

I like the thought you put into the finishing & adding the little narrow white strip to represent the one way.

Yay for a finish! I love that PQ motivates all of us to start the year off with a series of finishes. I found that the momentum carried me clear through July last year! Hope you win a prize!
