And more feathers....

Took the eye-blinding star off to a local long arm quilter- we will see how they do with it. Picked out a couple of templates and some orange thread and am leaving the rest of it up to them.

So back to the appliqué of these interminable feathers. Could I pick a slower hobby, or what?

Spent about 12 hours this weekend putting together another section of wing-


See the bottom five feathers on the right? That is my big accomplishment!

Shining Bright

Managed to get the background of the lap quilt put together this weekend and last night I finished sewing the star on the background.  Spent quite a bit of time sewing all those little squares together in the border edge, but I really like the way it turned out.

Now to find a long arm quilter in Jacksonville!
