Quilting progress - feathers
I needed a chunk of time to devote to quilting the the feather onto the quilt border and I found that chunk of time on Sunday afternoon. There was the question of "who" was going to help my daughter with her science fair project and I managed to get my hubby to do so ...
I used a white fabric pencil and free-handed the feather design onto the fabric. I prefer to quilt my feathers without marking the fabric, but in this case, I wanted to ensure a consistent "snaking meander" going all around the border, so marking it worked well. I used Coats & Clark variegated thread - the same thread I used for the the rest of the quilt.
I still need to go through and fix a few mistakes and then this baby is ready for binding.
In other (slightly tragic) quilting news, I am now "scrap less"
I asked my 16 year old son to empty the trash and he assumed my scrap bin was trash! Oy!!!
