Feathers and Tops
With a growing pile of quilt-tops and the reports of others leaving behind stacks of completed tops–and trying to complete the partially done projects left by my mother, I have been trying hard to lower that stack of guilt.
Four tops have now been converted to quilts but still need trimming and binding.
I’ve been piecing some backs–so much fabric I have–no need to buy backs–although it is so much easier to use a large single piece of fabric.
Mostly I do pantographs–a pattern I follow–I find it relaxing with the only difficult parts lining up the first row and figuring out how to do the final row.
But then I decided I really did need to try some free-form feathers. I’ve done a few–but it was time to try again.
And then load up the next top.
