Las Vegas MQG Charity Quilt...

This last summer I won a red Kona FQ stack from MamaCJT.  We used it at the LVMQG to make a charity quilt for the Mequite Club auction in November...

It was pieced during our meeting in August, assembled by Patti A., quilted by me and will be bound by Regina.  A final pic will be coming when it is completed, but here is how it looked after the quilting today...

The quilt is quite large...78" x 93".  I freehand quilted the swirls using Persimmon Signature cotton thread.  It took 13 bobbins...but only a few hours to quilt.  Let's hope it raises a bit of money at the auction this year.  I still have one leftover red pieced strip--what to make now??  A pillow??  A table runner?? get on that, right??

I LOVE the Bliss system that I bought.  Worth every frickin' penny I spent.  Honestly, I feel like I'm such a better quilter stitches are awesome, my swirls are not boxy, and my back and hands don't ache at all!!  Fantastic...

Happy Quilting!
