Threads used: Sulky Viscose in “Ivory” on top and Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly “Natural” on the bobbin. “Feather Swirl” (my name) is the quilt motif. It’s better than half complete. Have no fabric left for the binding…….hmmmmm…..the hunt is on!!!!

For supper…….a quick fix……popovers and chicken and wild rice with white gravy to put over.  014

      I so value your eval on my quilting (as you have been my inspiration for a very long time!!!!!!!). Aren’t popovers the best??? And they make an ordinary meal special. I do these cuz I can’t seem to make good biscuits to save my soul!!!!!! Sigh……………… (Maybe cuz I live in southern MN not the southern USA!!!! ROFL!!!!!!!)

  3. Doreen, Doreen, Doreen! The feather swirls is GORGEOUS!!!
    Total quilt envy over here!
    Hugs,

      They seem to be the one motif that pulls me in BIG TIME!!!!! I have to keep figuring out more variations!!!! Inspiration/instruction from Wendy Sheppard (Ivory Spring) and Jamie Wallen (YouTube videos) have been crucial in my learning the technical points about feathers. Thanks so much for your very sweet words, Friend!!!!! AND your stitching is certainly not shabby, either!!!!!!!! Hugs across the pond…………………

    I only do hand quilting but, when I see how fast you work and how pretty it is, I can see the appeal of working on a machine!

    • treadlemusic says:

      My hands won’t allow that quilting any more (used to do lots!!!) but I just am totally enamored by “machines” (of any sort!) so this machine quilting ‘thing’ is ME!!!!!
