Another finish.

Thanks to Nyla for giving me this great quilt for our cause.  I had put off quilting it because I always feel my quilting is inadequate for freehand work.  And then there is the question of how to fill all that space.  

Thankfully the quilt had some great applique blocks that were perfect for outlining, and some larger fill areas.

I also did the antique cars pantograph for our longarm guild raffle quilt.  I didn't get a picture of the completed quilt, but a few shots of the cars. 

I was surprised that a member's husband recognized many of the cars make and model  from the quilting.  

Now I'm working to finish the quilting on Jackie's monstrous, king size, black and white quilt for Christmas.  I'd also like to get a few more quilts done and delivered to Dr. Kaufman.  This is always a busy time of year for newly diagnosed diabetic children.
