New Zealand Manhole cover

My twenty-year-old neighbor, Maggie, is living in Wellington, New Zealand for a year. She posted this photo of one of the manhole covers back in July. I thought it would be a fun 12x12" quilt for our twisted stitcher challenge.

I drew it on some batik fabric and carefully cut it out with tiny scissors so I would have a positive and a negative of the image. Here's the positive.

... and the negative.

I'll get one of them quilted before the deadline.

Wonderful! Can't wait to see it finished and hanging in the show with the challenge quilts. :)
