Foster City Quilt

I've been busy--this is the photo and the quilt that emerged after a brief visit to a park in Foster City two weeks ago. I took a nice angled shot of a piece of the pier, printed it a few times on fabric, and made this little quilt (about 25 inches by 30 inches). I also tried using fusible fleece instead of batting, and even spray basted the backing, so no pins or thread basting were required. It's machine quilted with invisible thread. Today my needle and the base of my machine have some grey sticky stuff on them, so I'm wondering if it was the basting spray migrating out through the needle holes--must do further research. The sticky stuff cleaned off with water and Windex, at least.
