    My quilting has been hit or miss lately.  Rather than try to make a quilt, I found this vintage table cloth and went to town.   I miss spending time with my Millie!  I do have to say that I love having quilts on the table.  Now I need to find a Christmas poinsettia table cloth!  I had no plan for this one other than, I needed to quilt some feathers, I knew it need checkerboard cross hatching and I just needed to do some crazy quilting!!!  Just makes me want to do more!  I put it on the frame and just got started.  Used a little thread in the process.  One layer of hobbs 80/20 batting, glide thread on top magna glide in the bobbin.  Hand guided with a little ruler work.

    It's been a long time since I've been on this forum - or had anything to post.  My wife and I have been in our RV for most of this year, and I've not been able to play much with Lucius.   But we're back home now, and I'm finally fulfilling my hidden desires.
    She pieced this chevron quilt to try out using a layer cake of gradation fabrics.  When she had finished, she handed it to me and said, "Here you go.  Play with this and see what you can do.  It's just for practice!"

    So I decided to try a different pattern in each band and to use contrasting colors.  I'm tying it together by using curved patterns in the teal and straight-line patterns in the white.

    And then, for interest, I have added circles of different sizes and I'm practicing other patterns in the circles.

    Is this too much fun, or what?

    I'm not sure it goes with your color scheme...If I was you I would ship it to me....I'll see that it gets used.    It's beautiful.

    Sue;
    You transformed a basic table cloth into a work of art.  The crosshatching and the feathers are outstanding.  Great job.

    I love it! I have several of my Mother's and Grandmother's tablecloths to quilt! Right now they are on my bucket list but you have inspired me to get them moved up on the list! Your work is beautiful!
