A bit of quilting…

I finally started quilting the QOV that I had in the frame. I am quilting a simple meander in the very busy border and some gigantic feathers in the large triangles surrounding the center block.

The white lines you see are chalk guidelines. They will come out in the wash.

All the schools were closed due to the snow. Here is a peak out my back door.

I enjoyed a cozy warm day inside with this cutie!

I hope you are cozy and warm where ever you are as well!

Linking up with Free Motion by the River for Linky Tuesday.

I am a wife, mom of four amazing kids, and a librarian. I have been making traditional quilts for ages but have ventured into art qulting in the last several years. I also love to knit socks and mittens and dye my own fabric. I am thankful to God my Father and Creator for the gift of creativity!

    Lovely quilting job! I’m always puzzled when I get to the instructions “Quilt As Desired.”

  2. Great quilting choices. The view out your back door is amazing! We had an inch of snow overnight and through the day it is melting to slippy slush – not pretty!

    What a fabulous quilting design you’ve chosen. I’m a little jealous of that snow. We’ve had 1″ so far this winter – 1″. That’s not even enough to measure! 😦

    Your feathers are looking great. I love feathers on QOVs, just seems to add a bit of formality. We had over 13 inches of snow, was great to spend the day in the sewing room!

    Your feathers are beautiful, Katy! Practice makes perfect, right? And spending the day inside with that doll is just what the doctor ordered. I’m so jealous but I’d be hard pressed to care for a little one of that age with my bad back. I’m going through a particularly painful episode right now and can do very little for the time being.

    Did you use a template for the feathers? I would so like to be able to do this!

    beautiful work.. the snow reminds me of snow 4 years ago when i was in Owosso visiting friends. Over the years they had sent me photos of their home at Christmas time, when I was there four years ago it snowed so I saw the REAL thing.

    Your feathers look wonderful. I am going to have to learn to do these.
