TWO finishes for September

Medallion is complete! Binding is on, sleeve is on the back, labeled and a pillow case is labeled and ready to bring this baby to our guild's quilt show this weekend.
Yesterday afternoon I washed and blocked the quilt overnight, this morning it is laying much better and square. After the quilting it went from 42 inch square to 39! 
(note: the two lines in the corners are my longarm magnets to hold up the quilts)
Also finished is this UFO from 2005. Binding is on, sleeve is on the back and it's labeled! This quilt is 60 x 60. A mystery quilt top completed with Planet Patchwork in one day. My quilting friend from Illinois, Mary Kay was visiting and she helped with cutting. We made a few changes to the original design. Later I made a few more, adding the folded yellow inner border and then stitching that down with a decorative stitch on my Bernina. If I knew the layout before, would have made different choices with the directional fabrics, but that's the 'fun' of doing a mystery quilt! Glad it's finished. Some close up pics of the quilting...

I will be linking on Carrie's A Passion for Applique Link is up...
Clink on Nothing but UFOs to see what other UFOs were finished for September!

Check back after this weekend and I will have pics posted from the quilt show! 
Enjoy the day, stitching away!
