Sue, I said I used that thread on the black polka dot border, but I also used it on the sashing.

OMG, Sue! So fun to see your pictures and so glad you got to go to Lancaster! Yes, I do my own quilting on my Janome 6600 sewing machine. The rainbow thread I used on the border is called Mirage by Wonderfil (color 26). It is a 30wt. rayon and I had no issues with it at all going through my machine. Here's the link: http://www.wonderfilonline.com/product_info.php?cPath=21_23&products_id=71
Thanks so much for posting the pictures! :D

It was so much fun to meet Susan and share her enthusiasm and love of quilting. Together we drooled over both of Janet's quilts, and Sherry Reynold's quilt called "Fire in the Sky" - wall quilt home machine quilted. According to the steward both front and back of the quilt were entered and judged. Only the back was display. Of course, it was gorgeous. The show was great. I agree with Susan about negotiating Lancaster. Make sure the GPS is in working order. We got one of the last parking spaces in the garage at 8:45AM. Go early! The city is lovely and worth the trip.

Pictures coming, but now I'm toasting Janet, BJ and others who made it into a fabulous Lancaster show. I'm putting my feet up with a glass of vino & watching some basketball to get rid of the two hour turned into 3 hour drive home. (only complaining a bit, it was well worth it!

I got to meet Loise98!!!!

By the way, Lancaster has got to be one of the mostly poorly labelled cities I've had the privilege to visit. If you ever go, load the gps's ahead of time and make sure they are charged :-) Parking is a bear.

The quilts are awesome!!!!
