End of April - already! A Finish and a WIP

Just a final post of April, with a quilt I finished last weekend. For a small quilt, it took me awhile to finish it - see I started it back here.

Dream Feathers loose feathers corner 

hmmm.  Is this my only finish for the month - that's a bit of a change.
But, I have pulled out one of my UFOs - I started quilting this about a year ago, but it's now time to finish it up.

trying out some curved cross hatching

I put it away because I wasn't happy with how it was looking, but I now just think of it as practice and have fun with it.  Also, looking at it I can see how my quilting has improved in the last year - and that's a good thing!  UFO to WIP - that's the way I like it!

Happy quilting!

Hi Janet, thank you so much for the compliment you paid when you recognized me with the Liebster Blog Award. What an honor!

Oh my goodness that is breath taking!! The feathers are just perfect. I love curved cross hatching, yours looks fantastic!

As always your machine quilting is impeccable! Oooooo I'm so jealous! I definitely need to get the 2 commissioned UFOs out of the way so that I can concentrate on the FMQ!

Wow, your quilting is A.Mazing! Beautiful. Do you do that on a regular sewing machine or a long arm? Your finished quilt is stunning!

Regina said...

So great to see how the all-over feathers "break up" the squares. And the curved cross-hatching is genius, I'll have to try it!

Improvement is a good thing indeed, though to me ALL your quilting is fabulous. These feathers - whoa. And that curved cross-hatching! Whoa again.
