OMG: August finish

 I took handwork along on our trip but I didn't sew a stitch.

It was nice to get back to my sewing machine.

Here is my August OMG, finished.  When we left (August 9) I had quilted about half the center.  I finished it yesterday afternoon and took it over to Julie last evening.  She had nearly finished mowing the lawn so she opened the package outside.

She likes it.  

Here's the back with signature squares and a lovely poem by e.e.cummings.

P.S.   Here is a hearts-and-flowers hug quilt for another Magpie friend. That design inspired this quilt.
