WIP Wednesday

I loaded up my QOV top yesterday morning.

I debated thread and considered pantographs.

I have taken a couple of Craftsy classes from Angela Walters and have been practicing feathers. But it is so hard to actually do this on a quilt top you live. I mean, what if I ruin it or have to spend days roping stitches?

I procrastinated and played with designs on my Adobe Ideas app.

I decided to start with a feather border that probably wouldn’t show anyway.

Then I went to work and refused to look at it last night.

This morning I got up and wound bobbins. And decided to go for it.

So far, so good!

Oh, yeah! This is what I had in mind! But now I don’t want to go to work!

Linking up with Sew Fresh Quilts for Let’s Bee Sewcial and Freshly Pieced for WIPWednesday. Also linking up with Gemma at Pretty Bobbins for IQuilt.

    Looks terrific so far. I am in awe of your piecing skills, which must make the quilting so much easier! And darn that “working” thing for interfering with your quilty momentum!

    It looks great. Work interferes with my quilting as well. LOL

  3. Your quilting looks fantastic! I don’t blame you for wanting to stay home and finish. But it will still be there when you get back!

    Great job on the quilting. When I was still working, I sure hated how work interfered with my quilting … I guess that’s why I’m obsessed with quilting now that I’m retired … trying to make up for lost time? 😉

    Great quilt, it’s coming along nicely. I love quilted feathers. I see you like to visit linky parties and I would like to invite you to share your projects at mine as well–KISMIF at Modern Tradition Quilts.
