WIP Wednesday 4.29.15

Counting down the days until summer vacation.  Twenty!  Yikes.  Better get working on some of my customer quilts!  Here's what happened this week:

I finished the quilt on the longarm pictured below and decided to throw another customer quilt on the frame.  Here's Bonnie Hunter's pattern, Smokey Mountain Stars.  I have decided on the Jesters pattern.  The Loopys just weren't working for me.

I made a back for a customer quilt.  It can now be moved to the longarm area in the other house!  Sadly the customer thought she bought enough fabric for the backing of two quilts.  I'll have to shop for fabric for the other quilt back for her. 

I finished part 3 of The School Bell Has Rung is a sampler QA.  laugh yourself into Stitches.  

I finished the two purple Sawtooth sampler blocks for the RSC15 sampler.
I finished this purple table topper for the RSC15.  I liked having a little finished project for the month for the RSC15.  I may have to do more of this.  This is called #Twistsandchurns.
I loved playing with my Circle Lord microfiller templates.  I see more of this in my future for sure!  You can see more about the quilt on my post here.  It took five hours to longarm; love the details!

I worked on this customer quilt.  I quilted it with the Circle Lord Jesters pattern.  Love it too!

I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced today here.  (I'm not sure why there isn't a WIP Wednesday linky party on Lee's blog yet...)
