Well. I had hoped this project would be done by today . . . but it’s not. I’m full of excuses if you want to hear them. Family member with a back issue. Farm chores. Cranky daughter with TWO molars coming in. Kitchen painting prep. Son with an upcoming birthday that needs planned. House that needs cleaned all the freaking time. Shall I go on? I’ll stop.
Unfortunately as this is the last link up party for the selvage along, my motivation to actually finish this is gone. In all reality I probably won’t touch it again for awhile and the only sewing I’ll be doing in the near future is a birthday bunting and then some Christmas presents. I kinda suggested to my family we all do handmade Christmas this year and somehow the year has completely gotten away from me.
I’ll stop whining and just share pictures instead. That’s all most of us are here for anyway!
I do have the top completely quilted! Go me! Unless I decide to do the little triangles at the top of the feathers. Which I might. Someday.
I started with my selvages on the woodpile so I might as well end there, right?
Don’t lecture me on my ironing skills. I loathe it. I have seen something called “Flatter” out and about in the quilty interweb so maybe I’ll give that a try next time.
I’m pretty happy with the quilting.
I just love quilts with the sun shining behind them.
And while the sun is out, how about a lovely starburst, just for funsies?
Maybe a little wind too, to go with the sun. It really is a gorgeous day here!
If you want to make these feathers yourself, I have a link to the free pattern and tutorial by Blossom Heart Quilts in my very first selvage post.
That’s all I’ve got. It’ll probably be pretty quiet around here for awhile till I get the kitchen painted and the party planned.
Linking up with Renee of Quilts of a Feather and Jess at Quilty Habit. Thanks ladies for the push to create this and especially to Renee for all the advice!!!
