I wasn't sure if this would even count for the Challenge #6. It's supposed to be about how your quilting has improved. Well, it really has, so I thought I'd give some examples.
First and foremost, my feathers. The first feathers I made:
|Here I used feathers in the background and in the hexie flowers.|
|The leaves for the flowers are all feathers, each with a different top and several different fronds.|
|It's hard to see here, but there's a continuous feather border around the quilt, and each square contains a feathered wreath.|
|My AAQI quilt feathers, much more detailed.|
|My son's wedding quilt. My original design and all quilting is FMQ, unmarked. Really proud of this one.|
|My first wholecloth quilt. This created quite a stir at my guild's quilt show. It is all FMQ, even the straight lines. No walking foot. Can you believe it? I can't!|
To Sew Cal Gal and her wonderful experts, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have a new passion as a result of your inspiration. I have a lot further to go, but I have definitely made a lot of progress!
