For my first project of 2016 I tackled a top already sandwiched and waiting.
I decided that the piecing lent itself to using several FM motifs – different for each third. I love the feathers I quilted in the top portion.
I don’t really like the sharp grain lines in the colored part; however, they create a good contrast to the other parts. I do like the echoed drops in the bottom portion. The loops in the border were too spaced so I went back and quilted another line sort of echoing the first loops.
Overall I am pleased with the finished quilt and think it is a good sample for quilting class I will be teaching in February and March at Creative Sewing Machine Center in West Columbia.
Enjoy a few minutes of sewing / quilting each day.
