First Finish of 2016

     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. 


  1. Just beautiful! Your feathers are so excellent. I know your class will be well received. This is an excellent teaching sample. Great work.

  2. I love your quilting and it's helpful to me to see how other quilters do their quilting. Very good!
