What I've been up to

This is a bit of an update post.  Below are some photo's of my Tail Feathers Quilt.  I have completed all the quilting that I am going to do for now.  It has all been straight and curved using my walking foot.

I have decided it is time to put the binding on.  I have a few ideas for some free-motion quilting around the embroidery and along some of the sashing... but... a bit more practice is required first !!

I have also been working on a few stars for the Oh My Stars Quilt-a-long.  I have completed variation 3 - The wonky star, I only did the large 12" block with this variation because all the little bits & pieces were driving me insane LOL.  Here are a few pictures

I've also completed variation 4 - Frosted Tip Stars.. With this one I did some fussy cutting and I love this one best so far.

The light wasn't the best for the last shot.  So far I have compled 32 stars.  There are 8 of each star variation.  Here is a shot of all 4 of the 12" blocks... Starting to look good.
Carolynne has been working hard on the quilting of my World Traveller.  She has done all the trapunto and lots of ditch stitching... I have taken a few shots of the progress so far..

Work has kept me pretty busy..... so my progress on my free-motion quilting is a little slow.  Oh well back to it.

Happy Sewing



  1. Love your quilt! The stars are going to be incredible in that quilt too :)
