Happy Days Quilting

A blog about Applique and Quilting

Design Wall Monday

Its been a week of quilting, its lovely to be back on my sewing machine after weeks of hand applique.

I have free motioned around the applique (thank goodness for invisible thread as I'm still learning this skill!)

Then in the centre of the quilt, I quilted my one sided whimsical feathers, I downloaded the pattern off Patsy Thompson's website, I marked out the stem only, and then in the centre of the feathers I quilted the scrolls.

Next I started the borders, but with two sided feathers this time.

I will fill in around the feathers with more scrolls.

Thanks for stopping by, check out some more quilts at Judys Blog!

Wow! That's stunning!

Great job. I am totally impressed that you are doing this on a domestic machine rather than a long arm. I've got the long arm but I am a chicken where feathers are concerned. This is a great looking piece.
