I may never piece again . . .

I may never piece another quilt again at the rate quilts are coming in to be longarmed!  Three more are done, but there are 6 more waiting in the "wings".  I was feeling so overwhelmed that I asked my BQFF to keep 3 of them at her house until they're ready to be loaded so I don't feel so behind . . .  The good news is that I am getting so much done and it's just getting me that much closer to the upgrade for my machine that I have been wanting - Railz!!!! 

This is a quilt made from some vintage fabrics and the customer wanted it meandered - done!

Another customer wanted this 9-Patch meandered too - done!

I used the pantograph Petaluma on this Thimbleberries Quilt.  The batting was a pretty fluffy poly, but it turned out great, hope they like it!

One more done, 4 more to go + 4 more are enroute

Finished another one of Linda's that she made for a co-workers child.  I love the colors in this one, they're right up my alley and it was a lot of fun to quilt too!  I used Superior's Rainbow Thread - Citrus Cooler, one of my personal favorites to work with!

See what others are working on at Patchwork Times Design Wall Monday!

Another done, 5 more to go + 4 more on the way . . .

I finished another of Linda's fun quilts late yesterday afternoon.
I tried to get a good picture outside, but it was so stinkin windy I am lucky that the quilt is still here with me and that the wind didn't carry it off! I had to add a piece to the length of the backing on this one (so that's what the shadowing is down the center of the quilt is from). Well, I had better get busy loading another of hers on the frame before the other 4 quilts arrive later this afternoon!
