First is the Brick Road SAL from Monday's design wall:
Had to include my quilt-hanger's chartreuse running shoes. They just match the flange on the binding!
I quilted this modern quilt in straight lines. For some reason, Meggie (my long arm Mega-Quilter) didn't like the thread I started with. It was Superior Thread's "Omni," and I've used it many times before, but not for straight-line quilting. I tried two different spools of the same thread, and three different bobbin threads. When I finally tried King Tut on the top and Omni on the bobbin, it worked fine.
Next, I finished this Charm School wall hanging. The pattern is "Tea for Three" by Sandy Gervais for Pieces from my Heart. The fabric I used is a charm pack of "simple marks" by Malka Dubrawsky for Moda.
I had to finish it to go with the cute "coffee" sign friends Kathy and Becky sent me from Idaho. Doesn't it make a charming little vignette? I just need to add one of my Starbucks mugs from China. Or Ohio. Or Ireland!
Here is a detail of the quilted "steam" rising from the mug. Thanks, Beck and Kathy!

Tomorrow is Front Range Modern Quilt Guild. I'll be sewing the October Jelly Roll Party Sample! Can you believe it's only two weeks until the "unofficial" end of Summer, Labor Day?
