Kayleigh's quilt is coming along really nicely. I am in love with quilting feathers, it is so much fun and it looks soooo pretty! I've been trying to let the feathers go in different directions to not have them all point in one way, so at some places there are quite a few swirls to fill the space.
I have also found that quilting the feather towards me (starting the 'stem' at the top, stitching the point of the feather to me) that my feather ends up more 'rounded' and the loops of the feather are bigger too. Depending of the bulk inside the throat of my machine, I now try to stitch it that way. I like when the feather appears 'fat' rather than 'skinny', LOL.
I have a little space space left then its just the binding and I'll be done. This little quilt came along surprisingly fast.
I am also working on my hexies these past few nights. I now have 248 hexies pieced. I'm still not sure what I'm going to make with these, except that it feels good using up all my scraps.
