Playtime—–came to an end……………

Before noon!! How could it go by so quickly??!!! 5 stars-feathered, narrow inner border-plumed, outer border—well, you will have to ‘call’ that one! And the ruler work=pure joy!!! Let’s begin…………with ditch stitching………….IMG_0910Yup, around each star and each side of that dark “cinnamon” fabric. A very small task this time! IMG_0912A task made ever so much easier with my newest acquisition from Kelly Cline—-awesome ruler!!IMG_0913 I canNOT say enough about how easily it handles with Ms. Juki (2010/domestic)! The fact that it’s comfortably narrow (1.5” wide) but a whopping 14” long (awesome!!) allowed for a speedy ditching! This is a very new addition to her stable of quality fmq machine accessories (both longarm and domestic/sit-down machines).  Once that was completed, the “plumes” were put in place…………IMG_0918I simply used the seam as the feather spine and did a one-sided feather. Easy-peasy. On to the outer border. Hmmmm……… needed “points” to carry through the star theme, so I grabbed another ruler……….IMG_0914The green tape helped me remember which line I was using. Went around one time and, on the second pass, overlapped the points for a “Gothic” look……IMG_0917So neat, I think!IMG_0920These are the 3 rulers that somewhat of a workout this morning. The bottom rulers 2 “nest” and are from Handi Quilter. I am at the point of adding the binding……………..IMG_0924

A “Friday Finish” is on the horizon…………
