    Love the way you use different fills.  It draws my eye up and around the cross.  Way cool.  Thanks for sharing.

    What fun!  I put these pretty purple decals on Millie. 
     

     

     
    They are so much fun I ordered more for my DSM and my fabric stash cabinet.  They're available at www.quiltastick.com.  You can pick your own colors or custom designs too.
     
    They just make me smile.  :)

    I've used steam a seam 2 on McKenna Ryans.  I like to stitch around all the edges before it gets quilted, to hold them down and minimize fraying.  I do not consider them washable.

    I did an allover panto on this one and it was perfect for it. The front was so busy with all the different fabrics that she used that custom would not have enhanced the beauty of this quilt.

    The more I look at this quilt top the more I like it.  Can't wait to see what you do with the quilting.  Sorry, I don't have any great ideas.  i'm intrigued by the circular shape that the biggest black circles are placed in.  I might play with a way to emphasize that.

    Ardelle, your quilting is incredible.  I love all of it.  The radiating lines, the pebbles, the swirly background.  And those squares on point.....wow.  You were inspired.   You and Roger do make a great team.
     
    Remember how we used to "save to our favorites"?  I saved the pictures to my desktop inspiration folder.  Thanks for sharing!

    Finished this one this afternoon. It is pieced by my hubby, Roger Kerr. Pattern is Geese at my Wedding, by Judy Niemeyer. I used two battings.

    anniemueller got a reaction from K. Szymaszek in work in progress....what a difference the background filler makes   
    Boy, this has been a long time in the making.  This quilt is something I started almost 10 years ago.  I'm so slow at hand applique....thought it might never get done.  I'm finding that the machine quilting is super fun.
     
    I got so excited this week to see how the background filler makes this applique pop.  I'm still working on this block, and it's the first one of many.  Just had to share the fun....
     
    Before filler, I outlined the applique and did a small echo around it.

      Thanks for looking.

    Oh My, Annie,
    That's a very beautiful job you're doing.  I didn't even know feathers could be so small.

    Those are some itty bitty feathers! Congrats on finishing a hand applique.  I still have yet to add that to my list.

    The tiny feathers along the stripes look awesome! Do you use side light to see what you are doing? Any tips on how to make it look so perfect?

    Wow, is that pretty, but I think if I had chosen to do that, I'd be very sorry (and very tired) before I got half way through.  I hope you have a lot more energy than I do (which, of course, isn't hard).  That quilt will be lovely when you've finished it!

    ******************
    Great question Heidi.  You know, I read the post recently on quilting in the dark, and that's what I'm doing.  I'm using the machine's light and natural sun light from a window close by, and I turned my big fluorescent overhead light off.  That window provides good side light.   I'm using the edge of the brown stripe as the feather spine.  I start at the bottom and go up, then straight stitch back down the spine to get to the bottom again.  Then I sneak over in the ditch to the other edge of the stripe/spine.
     
    While I'm making the feathers, I concentrate on the shape.  I try to make them fill the space and taper down to the spine. I use the bump method.  And I try hard to touch the edges of the brown stripes and not wander into them.  It's looking much better than I expected.  The stripes on the fabric are not perfectly straight, they are a little wavy.  That actually helps me because I'm a little wavy too.  .
