Click on any of the photos for a better look. The “Gypsy” quilt fabric has been mightily depleted!!!! Just a few scraps for a future “string” quilt, perhaps!!!!! Yay!!!!! I used Isacord 40 wt poly thread on the top and Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly thread in the bobbin (‘zero’ lint!!!!!!).

Tomorrow, another finish!!!!! Til then………………………….

    Doreen the quilting is awesome.

  2. You’re finished with these already? Like you just started. I really do like this Bohemian style print. There’s something intriguing about the thought of being a gypsy. Well done, my friend.

  3. Feather heaven , that’s what you have created!

    Fabulous. They make me smile so I will keep having a sneaky look at them. Those fabrics are wonderful together and rounded off with the feather quilting, what else could anyone wish for in such a thoughtful gift?

    That was fast! I am sure the recipients will absolutely love them. The Gypsy fabric is fabulous and just the thing to brighten up a snowy day!

    Love the feathers Doreen – you are so talented in doing those. I’m still struggling with mine…one of these times I’ll make it. Did you take a lesson or just practice? Whomever receives these table runners will be extremely pleased!

      I watched videos and scrutinized Wendy Sheppard’s “Thread Talk” posts on her blog (Ivory Spring). I drew them a lot on a dry erase board. Another fabulous resource is Jamie Wallen’s YouTube videos (ex: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1yF0x83WM0w) Check it out. The angle you return to the spine is CRITICAL to the final look!!!!! Let me know if you have questions…….
