Thanks! Linda 🙂
This is a big one! I met Ann last January at Rainbows and Calico Things retreat. She was taking the class to make this awesome quilt called Rangeley Stars. Yes, January 2013 and she finished in April!! I’ve made progress on my retreat projects but not finished! Kudos to Ann for finishing.
The fabric colors are much truer with natural sunlight!
Thanks! 🙂 Linda
Marilyn’s quilt was perfect for freehand feather meandering. She wanted something more than a basic meandering but not as much as custom. It’s hard to see in this picture but we selected a soft green thread to accent the yellow fabric.
The detail shows how the feathers wander around the quilt, I love it!
I’ve been crazy busy lately, quilting quilts and having family fun!
Tomorrow, I’ll be going to a 3 day retreat to sew all day and maybe all night! Rainbows and Calico Things Quilt shop has a new retreat room and we’re excited to be the first group to initiate it! I’ll be working on my UGLY fabric challenge so look for pictures to follow. If you want to follow my retreat adventures, head over to my Facebook page, I’ll be posting pictures of our adventures!
Have a great weekend, I know I will!!!
In my effort to find fabric for cutting charms, I found some nearly finished blocks for a “bulls-eye” quilt or wall hanging. I finished sewing the stacked concentric circles and cut them into 4 segments.
I was playing around with arrangements but I’m back to my original plan of making them into “bulls-eyes” because I will probably need to trim the finished 4-patch to a standard size. I love the raw edges, too!
The PSQ blocks hang out on my design wall for inspiration!
Here’s a recent quilt that I finished for Emily. The quilting design is Meandering Feathers.
I ordered a specific color of Superior OMNI thread for this quilt and used it in the needle and the bobbin with very good results. The only difference I noticed is the need to wind more bobbins because the thread is heavier than So Fine 50, my usual bobbin thread.
Check out Judy at Patchwork Times for other Design Wall Monday projects!
Thanks for looking! Linda
