The Pink Sheet

Woo hoo!! This week I am featured on Gemma’s blog, Pretty Bobbins!  Thanks, Gemma! If you have never visited her blog, please have a look. She makes the loveliest quilts and is just starting her long arm business. I know you will enjoy her colorful little corner of the world. And the art deco inspired quilt she just finished quilting will blow you away!

I have decided that I need to be intentional about making time to practice my feathers. This means I have to be more patient about taking a quilt off the frame when I am done and using the extra batting and backing to practice. I bought a bright pink sheet from the thrift store and I have been tearing a piece off to practice on at the end of every quilt.





The next set is my next strip. I marked some squares and lines before stitching.







And that is about all the pink I can handle for one day!

If you are still with me, I am linking up with Kelly at My Quilt Infatuation for Needle and Thread Thursday and Gemma at Pretty Bobbins.

    Beautiful quilting! Practice pays off! And I love all the pink!

  8. Vera says:

    Your feathers are looking great. I especially like those in squares.

  9. Your feathers are so interesting – it looks like some of them are done up one side and down the other without a stem in the middle. Is that right? Is that one of the techniques you learned in Angela Walter’s class?

  10. Sara says:

    i think your feathers are gorgeous. i really love feathers and i’m hoping to get more practice with them soon.

  11. What a great idea. Practice stitches with leftover batting. One could make a sampler of quilt patterns. Both hand and machine quilters could benefit.
