Another Charity Quilt

Hi all!
I just took this off the frame a couple of minutes ago.


This is another guild charity quilt project (but I don't think it has a clear destination yet?)  One of our guild members pieced this quilt from donated Northcott fabric and came up with the design.  Pretty cool huh?

When she asked me to quilt it I couldn't say no!

I quilted this quilt in an edge to edge wave pattern using 40 weight Fil-Tec glide thread in a silvery grey top and bobbin.  I love the way that the shine in the thread echoes the shine in the fabrics in the quilt.  I was going to do custom quilting but I figured that since the quilt was already so busy that an all-over design would suit it better and - frankly - be quicker for me!  I love the texture!

I just got three more jelly roll race quilts in today to quilt for our guild so I didn't want to spend days quilting this one ;-)

I also have a few projects on the go for fall classes to get my store samples ready that I will share with you another day.  I am very happy with the way that they are turning out though and i can't wait to share!

Are you doing any summer quilting?

Katrina, do you know whether this is the moda bakeshop etchings quilt pattern? It looks similar but looks different because of the sashing.
Lovely quilt and quilting job.
