All Feathered Out!....

I've feathered and feathered so much I'm all feathered out!
Maybe I'm being too ambitious too soon....some are OK, some not so good. So I'll give it a rest for while. I have a Japanese Bento box quilt top that I may load on the frame and see how I go with quilting that..
Seems a shame to waste this practice piece of calico 150cm x 200cm, the wadding and all, so I may make a sewing machine cover with it, pot holders and a mug bag if there's enough!
Thank you all so much for your encouraging comments about my first quilting efforts on the frame..

Dear Jane is coming along very nicely... Section 8 is now done and it's onto section 9, that's the last section in my Quilt -As-You-Go method...then I want to do four DJ corner blocks and the borders, not sure yet how I'll do the borders...

We are having really bad stormy weather just now, I'm sure the news tonight will have pictures of storm damage...I can't remember it ever being this bad before. Luckily we have not had any damage, hope it all blows over soon...

Take care..♥

  11. I'm with you, enough practice, dive in. The feathers are great, nothing to critique. The dear Jane is lovely. Are there tutorials out there (free) for quilt as you go? I did one technique quilting to the flannel batting but you still machine stitch together and added backing.

    I'm so silly, I thought your frame was going to be for hand quilting!

  19. You're having fun, and your quilting designs are lovely.
    Question--where did you find the "don't tag me, no awards please" illustration on your blog? I was just tagged by someone, I appreciate the thought, but it's not for me.

  22. How exciting to have a new frame, and your 'first play' looks awfully good to me. I'm still struggling with my FMQ to keep meandering curvy and not spiky, lol. I'll be interested to watch your progress and hear your experiences, as I would like to have a frame one day. Well done.

  24. Julia, really interested in this post regarding your frame and the quilting machine. Plan to get the frame one day but from the net could net get much infor. If you do not mind is your frame from PFAFF Inspira? Locally can get the Grand Quiter but not the frame here (Malaysia). Thanks.
