Finish it up Friday!

I finished the binding on my PMSing Farmer’s Wife and took a few pictures in the snow.


I also finished the Tree Everlasting top.

I need to get a backing ready and get it loaded into the frame. I was so excited to quilt this but I think now that it is almost time, I have stage fright. I have been watching YouTube videos on feathers. I also have a panto with feathers and stars that would perfectly fit in these columns. That feels like cheating but I want it done well if I am going to give it away as a Quilt of Valor. Here is the panto:

It is called Starstruck and it if from Meadowlyon Designs. I plan to do continuous curves in the triangles and possibly cross hatching in the red columns. Decisions, decisions!

I am linkng up with Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict for:

I am also linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it Up Friday.

Also linking up with Val’s Quilting Studio for Tuesday’s Archives.

    Thanks, Vicki! I went with the panto on this one, it just fit too perfectly. However, I am planning to get brave and throw some tops together to just practice feathers. I LOVE them, just haven’t been happy with my own lately. I wasn’t happy with all my FW blocks either and I do not like my quilting on this quilt but from a distance, I love it. So get yours out! I want to see it! LOL

    Take care, Katy

  7. Your Farmer’s Wife is just stunning! That pantograph looks perfect. If only I could use them properly. (I never could color in the lines. 😉 )

    That’s really beautiful. I even checked the farmer’s wife sample book out of the library after seeing your posts!

    I love your Farmers Wife, it is gorgeous. I think your red and white quilt is beautiful too. The quilting design you showed will look great. I love the snow pictures.

  12. Your Farmer’s Wife quilt is so beautiful!!!

  13. I love your farmers wife , it is gorgeous. I have one started and languishing in a box because I hated piecing them and they aren’t perfect. I need to get them out. I want to encouraged you on making the fmq feathers. They are fun and easy!! They are some of my best work! I like the hook feathers the best. Just jump in to the deep end with both feet, you will love it!!!

  14. There is NO HARM using the panto. If nothing else, it will reinforce muscle memory for you on creating those feathers. Think of it as an ice skater practicing old fashioned figures. The figures done over and over allowed them the fluidity needed for choreographed pieces.

    How large is the tree everlasting? I see you use the AccuQuilt regularly. Do you use it for all your work? Can you post about advantages and disadvantages?
