A Quick Update

I know I don't usually post more than once a week, and it hasn't been a week since my last post, so I am getting ahead of myself. But I wanted to share the progress on the little flimsy pile.
A complete finish on this little quilt from Pam Buda's Orphans and Scraps SAL  back in 2013.

The quilting on these three is completed and the binding just needs to be stitched down by hand.



I did feather the basket quilt after all. Before I started the quilting I marked the outer boundary so the feathers didn't end up under the binding. Then I marked the curved spines for the feathers in the setting triangles. You can faintly see the white lines to the right.

I was pretty happy with the way the feathers turned out. I haven't stitched feathers for a while, so I was a bit hesitant to get started.
 For those who like to view things from the back, here is a view for you. : )

The log cabin quilt was fun, after I got the ditch stitching completed. I ditch stitched along every edge where the two contrasting color bands meet. Then I stitched a rope design in the light color and  a cable pattern in the dark colored logs.

Below is a view from the back.
I have seven more little quilts hanging in my sewing room, waiting next in line to be quilted.
That's all for now. Can you believe it? : )
Until next time, Janet O.

  10. Lovely from the front AND the back :-) I'm with you in the attention to SID on minis, as well as keeping the design a bit simpler. Your work shows how nicely they turn out.

  19. Your quilting brought those mini's to life. The designs you went with couldn't have been better suited. I'm partial to feathers too. I like how you connected all of the outer edge together with the continuing vine. That was a great idea!

  26. There is no reason to be concerned about those feathers! They are beautiful! Love the cables and ropes too...........I might be able to do those with walking foot? Feathers.....will likely have to stay with handquilting! Doing a little cable on my Jo Morton Courthouse Steps for this evening's relaxation time!

  31. Your little quilts are so perfect. It's hard for me to imagine making anything with such small blocks, let alone having them come out the ways yours do.

  32. That's all? Each one of these would have been a separate blog post, as slow as I work.You have made terrific progress.

  33. Awesome! I'm sure you could find a cute little quilt for the swap:)

  34. Amazing! I love your quilting designs. The cable on the log cabin is especially lovely. I always find that a difficult pattern to quilt.
    I'm not sure if I ever asked, but what kind of machine do you have? and what weight thread do you use for all your machine quilting.
