    I've been quilting none stop (almost) for three weeks.

    I've made table runners, wall hangings, and more table runners, and wall hangings.

    Over the last three days I've also made, start to finish, these two quilts. The first one is full/queen size, the other one is queen/king size.
    They are ready for the hand stitching the binding onto the back. My co-worker who is off work recovering from knee replacement surgery has offered to do that for me.

    I am making these to sell at a new establishment opening up in a couple of weeks and they wanted to carry my stuff!

    Now, time to get to more customer quilts! Turn around time is still quick!

    Very nice quilts. Your use of black, especially in #1, gives them some pizzazz.

    I love both your quilts. The colors are gorgeous and I can't decide which I like better, but I think with autumn coming (my favorite season) I'll say the second one. The quilting is beautiful. Nice of your friend to help out with the binding. Good luck in your new venture. Sounds great.

    The 'shop' is actually a restaurant/store that someone is opening up. My DH works part time with one of the people who either owns it or will manage it.
    I'm still doing the LA work for customers, and now the quilts, as well as part time at WM !
