Full Size Donation Quilt

I finished quilting this today.  I just played with various free motion designs.  Glide thread - cream and 80/20 batting.

WAYWO = what are you working on.

I am quilting a donation top.  It is almost done.  No pictures until I can find my charger and get my camera battery charged.

Color Study top is done.  It kept evolving because I would sew the pieces onto the oposite side off the quilt quite by accident.  It is very much improvisational which would be easier if I had a big design wall.

I turned in the donation quilt I finished at Retreat finally last Tues at guild.  The binding is the machine binding sometimes called magic binding.  I first saw this quilt shop demoing it with their ruler at Houston.  I like it a lot.

Color Study UFO

I had these star blocks from a color study my bee did years ago.  Then after Hurricane Sandy I was putting them together to make a donation quilt but never finished (though I took home two other tops and quilted them for the guild to give to Sandy victims).

I wanted to finish it up and now the Community Service Chair is collecting twin and full size quilts for a donation so I am trying to make it big enough for a twin.

At this point, I am adding one more row to the bottom and then I think a piano key border in black and white prints......maybe some color in the border in the lower right to balance it out?
