Three on one back...

Pat picked up some shot cottons on sale.  They are beautiful, but rather thin.  It took ironing with a lot of starch to be able to load on the longarm, but provided backing for three quilts.

The color achieved from the threads makes the fabric shimmer.  This top Pat put together from blocks we acquired at the retreat in Phoenix in February.  There is already a lot of buzz for next year's 10th anniversary retreat on the quilting forum.
The next two are from Yetta.  I've already got four quilts for my next delivery, and a fifth ready to load and quilt.  Thanks to all my friends whose extra blocks, tops, etc. help make these quilts.

 The sky was ablaze yesterday morning with color.  The day in comparison was gray and cloudy with the ever present breeze.  The sun room is already performing even on such a cloudy day, and was able to keep the temperature at 70 throughout the day.
