A second finish for April (before the month is out!)

As for most teachers, holidays are a busy time with my own children at home - you sort of moving from looking after other people's kids to looking after your own just to go back to looking after other people's kids lol. I was very lucky these holidays to also have my DH at home, he's been completing heaps of his own UFOs in the garden. The weather was also kind to us, and add the new xbox kinnect to that I got quite a bit of time to do my own thing!


QAYG as learnt from Mari on The Quilting Edge

Diane Gaudinsky Echo Plume Feathers plus stippling as taught by  Leah Day around it

I should have ironed that binding, it looks like I missed the edge of the batik but I didn't lol


My QD9 was finished on Friday, though I have to admit there are still a few stray thread ends on the back which I will tend to soon. I really like how it turned out, the pattern offers lots of different options for setting the blocks. I am especially proud of the quilting, only during the process of making this quilt did I learn to quilt nice feathers. This was my first go at QAYG, too, love it, will definitely do that again! Here you can read a summary of how it all came together.

Happy Sewing!
