This little quilt I'm working on is turning out to have a couple of firsts for me.
I have practiced a lot of feathers just for fun, but never ended up adding them to a real quilt top. Perhaps this is out of fear of getting myself in over my head or not having the dedication to getting them perfect.
Well, I'm going out on a limb here, and throwing caution to the wind. Feathers, here we come.
I'm also using some self-designed fabric on the back - photo of it here on an older post. I love to design fabric with my calligraphy but it's hard to cut into it.
Solution: Put it on the back of the quilt! No cutting required.
And for those of you (my sister) who were wondering what book I want for my upcoming birthday, Album Quilts of Ohio's Miami Valley by Sue Cummings is on my short list.
