And I finished the border on the batik braid quilt. I've been drawing some designs out for the large purple triangle areas. I just got the DVD set from Kim Brunner - "Twirly Whirly Feathers". Oh it was wonderful!! If you want to do free form feathers, I highly recommend this one.
Here's a few designs that I'm been playing with today. the last one is my favorite. I'm just really amazed that I could even draw these out. This is my last feather practice quilt before the Baltimore Album. I've cleared my "in progress list" to only two - the Baltimore Album and the wedding quilt. The happy couple have not yet set a date, so I don't feel much pressure on that one. But the Baltimore Album is the last one on my list for PhD challenge which is closing the end of June. I can do it I know I can!!
So which of the feather designs do you think for the batik braid quilt? I"m think the feathers in the corners and then McTavishing between the braids and around the feathers. Not really sure how to quilt the braids and the border. I want those to be the same design. Maybe some fern like feathers there, hmmm a little stumped on that part. But I still have to piece the back so I have a little time.
Don't forget to stop by Judy's to see what is on everyones design wall this Monday, so much inspiration!
