I’ve been busy in the sewing room so far all day and finally have all the framing sections straight line quilted – now to trim up all the threads before moving on to the free motion quilting but I thin that quilting I’ll save for another day.
Last night as I was winding more bobbins, I decided not to waste the thread on two bobbins that were left over from the last project and not the right color for this one.
I had pulled this block out thinking I’d made a pillow out of it and had it layered with some leftover batting waiting to be quilted. The border is just a bunch of various random stitch patterns I was trying out, and the center has various feathers quilted on it. I can’t take credit for the actual block – it was one I received in a block swamp many many years ago but I love the little hummingbird and the fabrics that were used in this block.
Now I think I actually need to get dressed and go outside! Yes, I’ve been busy quilting in my pjs – appropriate since it’s a pj party weekend of quilting on The Quilting Post yahoo group. But it is fairly sunny tho really windy since the trees are really swaying out there – but my computer says the temperature is about 70 — so I have to go really see if it’s that nice outside and perhaps open a window or door and let some fresh air in if that’s the case.
