I knew it had been a while since I posted anything but I didn’t realize how long it had been! Are you all still there?
In a week, Christmas Town Sampler will begin so watch for a post next Saturday with my first block. Then you can visit Denise , Susan, and Judy to pick up their blocks. Have any of you chosen your fabrics yet? Well, neither have I. Lol
Since my last post, I’ve been to St. George, UT for longarm training at Teryl’s & John’s shop, Let’s Quilt. It was a fabulous trip. I had a cool room mate and great people in class with me. I’ll post some pictures of the trip later.
The thing that has really been keeping me busy has been Judy L’s free, online feather class. The lessons are still on her site under “tutorials” so be sure to take a look. She’s got some really good tips for those of us who aspire to quilt lovely feathers.
I hadn’t finished my quilt top in time to start class on time so I had to play catch-up. I finally got started on the feathers and I’ll tell you right now….anything looks good from a galloping horse.
I’m satisfied with the quilt and it was a great learning experience but there’s definitely room for improvement….vast improvement. I’m glad you can’t see all the missed backtracking and wonky shapes. All you can see in the pictures is the overall effect and that’s good. I quilted it on my Innova.
I took the pictures outside to get better color. Obviously the grass and weeds need trimming around the garden bench.
If you’ve always wanted to quilt feathers, just go for it. It’s fun!
