It's Finished Friday

I quilted two quilts on my Mega Quilter this week.

The first one is the Brown Bag Surprise Quilt from Sunday at Ruth's Stitchery:


 The dark color is purple, it doesn't show up very well in my photo.

I used an overall meander stitch with a new polyester-wrapped poly thread, "Omni" that I bought from  Superior Threads at the Cincinnati Quilt Festival.  This thread has a really nice sheen, it looks a lot like rayon thread, but it's much stronger.

The second quilt I long-armed is "Strips and Ladders."  The fabric is Lily Ashbury's "Summerhouse." and the backing is some pepto-pink from the stash.

 

I pieced this quilt at Granny's Attic's "Quilting in the Pines" retreat in Idaho last October.  I quilted it with the same thread, but used a loop design that is really fun to quilt.  I just put on some swing music and loop-de-loop!


I'm going back to "Quilting in the Pines" next week, and taking this quilt along to put on my bed.  It's been snowing this week in McCall, so I might decide to take two quilts!
