Part 5: I Love it when…….

A plan comes together….don’t you?? I’m at the point where getting a photo is becoming a bit of a challenge. This quilt is 84”x90” and being stitched “in the round” instead of the usual center-outwards (in quadrants) so I’m constantly rearranging it while stitching…….and building muscles (this happens when quilting on a domestic/sit-down mid-arm like my Sweet 16). The first feather round is completed………it really went too quickly!!! IMG_1753 (2) I marked the feather spines only so that it would be similar motifs all the way round the center. The feathers themselves are totally hand-guided free motion. IMG_1753 This center will actually be ‘on point’ when finished but it just wouldn’t fit in the photograph well unless “squared”. Once on the bed, this will be closer to the ‘look’……………IMG_1756
