A quilt quilted!

 I finished quilting my mom's quilt last night. I am going to my hometown today to visit and attend our family reunion, so will take the quilt with me.
 The back is a solid torquoise, so the thread blends in well with it.  I really like this panto and plan to use it on my next quilt.
Wednesday night was the last night for this Sampler Club, so while they sewed I hung their finished blocks on the design wall. There is a third member who is working on a different sampler, but I forgot to hang hers as things got busy for a bit. I will catch her next time. She might have it finished by then! They will start a new Sampler next month.
With such different color choices, they really don't even look like the same pattern.

Tomorrow I have the second class for the Twisterweave Mystery quilt, so the students get the 2nd clue. I have seen a couple of them this week, and they are caught up and finished with clue 1. Next Saturday I will give them the final clue and finishing instructions. I quilted it soon after I made it, but haven't put the binding on it yet....probably should...soon.

The partial frame around the Sampler blocks is a great idea that I may have to "borrow."

Jean, I really like the way the blocks on the sampler are put together. Is this your own design??

Love that panto on your Mom's quilt, too.....

I love your mom's quilt. Lovely colors and your quilting is great of course. The sampler blocks do look like different projects.

Those samplers are so cute.
And your Mum's quilt is amazing. Looks hard too! *smiles*

Your moms quilt is awesome. I always wanted to try one of those, what you call them "stack and whack?"
The quilting is great.
