Feather Ready!

Well after hours of fiddling with different applique idea for this quilt I've decided, it's a quilt top, ready for quilting.  No more applique just tons of feathers, maybe some cross hatching.


Just look at all the wide open spaces....oh yes... just right for feathers galore.


After all the fussing about the applique it came together in the middle perfectly, what a relief.


I'll start marking it for quilting this afternoon and hope to have it on the frame by tomorrow morning.  Dolly(my BHQ 15) has been sitting idle for over 6 months.  Waiting patiently for me to get over my keeping it simple stage.  The wait is over!   I'm dusting her off, giving her a lube job and taking her for a test drive to blow out the gunk....YeeHaw!  My Mojo is back!  Hold on tight old Dolly, I'm putting the pedal to the metal and we're making up for lost time!  See you gals in a few days with sneak peak at what me old Dolly can do when we team up!


I'm linking up today's post with these fun linky parties.

  5. I'm impressed on many levels -- the split Dresdens, the scalloped border, the applique stitching, the idea itself. Can't wait to see the feathers.
