Thursdays

Here are a couple of pictures of the quilt on my frame. I feel like I have turned a corner..this is the 1st quilt that I have ever looked at and said " I know JUST how I want to quilt this!" Of course it didnt' hurt that the owner of this quilt, my friend Pat No Blog, lets me quilt what ever I want. She is nice that way...well..she is just plain NICE!



Here is a picture of the border. I did the body of the quilt in light blue , but I didn't think the blue would show up on the turquoise, so I used a pink. I just love this leafy feather. I have seen it done also with some berries. I'm not sure where I would put the berries, so saved that idea for another day. The curl with the feather comes from Carla Barrett. Look under the tutorials.





The body I did a whimsical feather meander. I added curls and curliques. The squares were done in continuous curve. I love quilting things that need no marking. Its kinda mindless...hehehehe. NO...I don't nod off or get mesmerized. Its just fun wandering around a quilt with no particular place to go!


I will show a whole picture of the quilt when it is off the frame. I think we are going to look for a new vehicle for me! YIPPEEE! I believe my mini van days are over.
