YOU HAVE ENOUGH QUILTS WHEN YOUR SOUL IS FILLED,
YOUR CREATIVITY SATISFIED
AND YOUR FINGERS JUST WON'T WORK ANYMORE

Another finish

Well, finally finished another quilt. When I got back from the Sydney Show I was very motivated and after unpacking I loaded a quilt and started quilting. Took me a while as life things just get in the way all the time. But finished binding it last night. A machine quilter had shown her quilt on a list I'm part of and I just loved the look of it - so had to make one (as you do). The quilting isn't going to win any awards but at least it's another quilt finished. It has been a very long time since I have done much quilting. Too many other things get in the way and I'm getting very frustrated about that. I bought Kim Brunner's book and DVD a while back and have been itching to have a go at these feathers.....not perfect so no close ups of the quilting. I love how it's turned out. I'm pretty rusty but will keep practicing.

Hey Maggie! Your pyramid quilt looks FANTASTIC!! Well done! Isn't it wonderful to cross a project off the list of "Things To Do". And I think the quilting looks just fine - if anyone is close enough to find the small imperfections, they're TOO close and you should charge an admission fee! Tee! Hee! Hee! Oh - love your red and white fabrics in the previous post, too. Glad to see I"m not the only one who's been led astray recently! Still, we'll have lots of fun playing with all those lovely fabrics, and not a calorie added! :0) Have a great week! Bear Hugs! KRIS

Hi Maggie, just had to pop over and see what you are up to these days. The pyramids quilt looks awesome. I never could have guessed that you feel "rusty" at quilting. The feathers look great!!
What fun to have another finish..I could use one of those myself. Hugs, Finn

Isn't it a good feeling to cross a project off the list.

Hi Maggie, Just wanted to thank you for the kind comments on my plaid quilt. Since you are a no-reply blogger I couldn't e-mail you. I have to say your pyramid quilt is just gorgeous and the quilting is fabulous. There is no way you can say you are rusty. Those feathers are perfect.

I love your quilt so much, are the feathers difficult to do? Have not tried any free motion feathers on my machine.
I would love to make a quilt like that.
cheers
Christine
