      Almost to the finish line. It will be a warm, cozy finish for our bed. The wool batt is really nice…..light weight but seems to generate warmth. I never dreamed that this winter would hang on like it is doing so that we would want this quilt on our bed in March!!!!!!

    The quilting on the pink is the icing on the cake. An intense pink will set off the whole thing. I do like looking at your quilting, it gives me ideas for my future quilts. However so far it is only ideas. I seem to stick to the same old meandering lines. LOL.

    • treadlemusic says:

      Once you decide to do another stitch pattern, you will rarely return to meandering cuz you will find the others way too much fun!!!! Pick a quilt that has a relatively “busy” print for the top (where the quilting won’t be so dominant/visible) and go for it!! That’s how I first started. It’s a real confidence builder. I know that I did some practice stitching/testing of tension, etc but there is no substitute for stitching on a ‘real’ quilt!!!! You can do it!!!!!! Hugs……………….

        OK you have talked me into it. I have a few 14″ quilt sandwiches I made up for practice stitching so will have a go on one of them. Once I have a ‘busy’ quilt ready there will be nothing stopping me. I can always use my seam ripper to take out the stitches and start again. LOL. Thanks for the vote of confidence. 😉

      The feathers are finished. Now to fill in the swag and do the stitching below that. I need to get some intensely pink fabric for the binding and I’ll call it a finish!!! Yay! Thanks for stopping by!!!! Hugs…………..

    Love love love. It does not get much better than seeing a picture of your handiwork on a day like today. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Gorgeous, delicious scrumptious feathers! I need to do some practice with the swirls on the end! Love that!!!

    • treadlemusic says:

      The swirls can just embellish or fill-in or cover up a mis-stitch or two!!! I leave it to you to guess which applies!!!! LOL!!!!!! (Thanks to Wendy Sheppard @ “Ivory Spring” blog for the inspiration!!!! Hugs……………
