|It is straighter than this picture would indicate!|
|This guy and his brother below are my favourites!|
|Some of the quilting from the back; I followed Leah Day's advice about matching top and bobbin thread. There are some puckers, but nothing 'fatal'.|
|Youngest DS fast asleep under his new quilt (with his thumb plucked in) - didn't even wake up when I turned on the big light to take this pic. Note the dinos on the blinds?|
I can't remember if I had counted this next project on my UFO list at the start of the year, but it was started in 2011 and is finished now:
|I made this as a practise for my pastel tesselation quilt to go onto our NZ Superking size bed. Using it as practise piece for feather quilting, I divided it in half diagonally like the Quadruple Disappearing Nine Patch which will also go on our bed.|
|It took me some time to figure out how to do plumes in the inside of a circle.|
tutorial on quilting feathers by Diane Gaudynski as part of the 2012 FMQ Challenge (I didn't sign the pledge but still find it interesting to look at). I had read one of Diane's books, but her tutorial was a lot more helpful to me.
If I counted right, this makes it 6 finishes so far - yay!
