A Small Finish

As you know, I’ve been practicing feathers this week. The other day, I mentioned trying to figure out how to quilt my little posy quilt and Sue, from Sue Daurio’s Quilting Adventures, commented that I should use feathers.

After I stopped laughing, and thinking that was easy for her to say (go look at her work!), I thought, what the heck? This quilt is only about 9″ x 12″ so these are pretty small feathers.

I quilted a tiny loopy pattern in the background. It is far from perfect but I like it! Pictorial stuff is outside my normal box and clearly, the quilting was too and that stretch is always good.

Have a great Saturday!

    I’ve told Sue several times that I want to be like her when I grow up, her quilting is fantastic! I love your little quilt. The quilting is great. I tell myself all the time that I won’t get better unless I do it. So doing it is fabulous!

    Love it, you did wonderfully. I need to play more, maybe my feathers would look more like yours and less like an exercise in funny looking hearts! cdahlgren at live dot com

    Very cute! The only way to learn is to do! And you did. And the feathers don’t even look like “just practice,” but good.
