Finished 2 quilts this week!

I'm on a ROLL! Don't think I've ever finished 2 quilts in one week before--what a great feeling.

This will be my donation to the Sutter Breast Cancer Auction along with 8 other quilts, one each made by my Spring Chicks group. (They're not supposed to see this one until August when it's due but I can't help myself).

Below is the detail of the quilting that a longarm quilter from my quilt guild, Cathy Evans, added. I hope someone finds this quilt worthy of donating some serious money for this great cause.
The other quilt I finished is the April UFO that Judy challenged us to finish so I'm going to wait to post a photo of that until the 30th. I think you'll like it! If you want to see a 'before' photo of it (as a top) look at #4 in this post here.

Check out all the other accomplishments from Design Wall Monday on Judy's website.

And if you want to see a hilarious U-Tube video to prepare you for the Royal Nuptuals later this week, check this out!

I love that pattern!! So much nicer than mine. My Sutter Donation Quilt is much scrappier but I think I will hand quilt it (straight lines work great) and do a fancy pattern in my blank spots. I do love the machine quilting!! btw, I was up at 5:00 waiting for this but nothing until I get to work? Dang.

Two finishes in a week is a great accomplishment! This is a beautiful quilt and will definitely attract attention. I'm plugging away on my UFO #4 but will only get it to the flimsy stage before the deadline. It's been a busy month!

It is a great week that has ANY finishes in it!

Love the pattern in this one. And a great charity contribution.

We have our Quilts of Love Show by the Giving Quilt Guild in a couple weeks. All year long we collect charity quilts and they display them and give them out in May. It is amazing to see!
