On a roll this week.
Within less than a week, I have completed three quilts. The first one was the retirement quilt that you can see here.

Quilted this one with a swirly blade and a double row of stitching in each of the piano keys
Here's a peek at the backing.
I did have trouble with this one where it came to the tension on the stitching, but I do like the design that I chose to use on this quilt. So I learned that King Tut thread is a very temperamental thread to work with, but I am still happy with my quilting.
So....that is three quilts on the "done list" in one week.....less than one week. That list is getting shorter and shorter all the time. If I can get this many done in a week, I should be ahead of the game. Of course,.....I am always starting something new.
