Is always needed…er…..welcome, no??? One of the quilting projects that has crossed my path are table-toppers being done as a ladies’ group assembly at the little church we attend/belong. The stitching began late last year, with those wanting to gather for a “sew in” on a Friday/Saturday at our building…..a time of stitching, (a little) munching and general good time fellowshipping. The 10 toppers, with a somewhat holiday feel, are assembled and various ones are finishing the quilting and binding process. The quilting will be different on each one, as some are hand quilting and I (no surprise!) am going the machine route. The pattern is a good one……….. and is done in Moda fabrics……. I stitched a feather wreath with arcs in the other shapes and a grid in the center of the wreath. I thought that the grid area, which will most likely have a centerpiece placed on it, was a tad plain so I just needed to add some ‘orange peel’. Much better…..don’t you think??????? The feather plumes actually form an even wreath, even though they appear otherwise from the angle of the camera! I marked the inner circle and an outer (plume edge) circle with air-erase marker. All else is hand guided free motion quilting. Below is a view of the back………….
