Design Wall….er….Table Monday…………………

Wall…table….what’s in a word? Today was finish a quick “UFO” day (actually, get rid of a little stack of fabric left from 3 previously completed pillowcases). This time I needed to bring it into the quilty world by doing something with the “cuff” portion. I do the “burrito” method of construction with French seams for a nice finish inside and out.

Adding a few feathers was sort of a “no brainer”, dontcha think??

 

 

 

 

 

I’m adding the feathering before the side seam/bottom seam are stitched. I completed the cuff and slipped a 4” strip of batting into the cuff tube and began stitching. IMG_9264 IMG_9266 

and done……IMG_9270 

Next up….some more (awesomely fun) client projects……….got my “light table” stuff together. Of course, it’s what I have on hand that gets the job done (I really don’t need any more stuff, so I pulled this together from what’s already here)…………IMG_9276    Yup…an Ott Light and a plexi extension table….

      It truly is a “joy” to be able to spend time at this process……and share it with others! I believe that you, also, know that same joy (different art form)………your sweet words touch my heart……hugs………

    That’s a neat way to dress up a pillow case and make it more of a sham. 😀 a great light table you have there, gives me some ideas…..

  3. You are really designing some beautiful quilts things:). Great job!
