DWM - July 16

Ahhhhh, how nice to get some sewing in on Saturday.  Any one doing the Calm Blue Ocean Mystery at Silly Goose Quilts?  I did mine in green, not blue so really needed a new name and mine is called "Tossed Salad". Not sure how it's gonna turn out, but I sure do love how these blocks look right now.
Tossed Salad 
And I finished quilting my Carpenter's square.  I have chicken fabric that I used so I gave those chickens some feathers.  This is going on my kitchen table.  I tried some curly q's in the feathers on the green and black.  And I tried hook feathers for the first time.  I love how other make them look, but I just couldn't quite get the hang of it.  I'll try again on a different project.   I mark the veins of the feathers.  In the corners of the center, I marked two of them wrong. But I"m not taking it out, it's just find for my table.  Now I need to get some pretty flowers for that table.
On my table, just fits

  12. Wowzer girl! Tossed salad is great. And, I love the name! But the feathers are SPECTACULAR! Great job. But, on the kitchen table? Really? It will be quite the table cloth that's for sure. What type of batting do you use?

  22. Your feathers are beautiful. I did just one border and then my CS has just sat. I am planning on getting to it either today or tomorrow and really try to learn my feathers. I quit because I was thinking about just finishng it with a panto and felt that was not going to improve my feather learning curve. ;-)
