Sarah’s Feathers

Sarah made my day when she sent me a sweet email:

“Wendy, thank you so much for your blog.  You have changed my whole attitude toward quilting feathers.  And I can do it now… I finally have success for the first time and love it!”

Below is the picture Sarah sent with her email showing me her feathers.  I say Sarah did a most excellent job, wouldn’t you say so?  I am going to see if Sarah would send us a picture of her completed quilt.  I, for one, am very interested to see what the whole quilt looks like.

She added, “Not perfect, but I’m learning and having fun.”  That’s really the key attitude to have for quilting, wouldn’t you agree?  Thanks for sharing, Sarah!

It seems like free-motion-quilting is the buzz for the month of August on Ivory Spring.  Click here if you haven’t check out my tutorial on SewCalGal’s FMQ Challenge August – lots of fun on that site!

Okay, it’s another day running around getting ready for a big project in my life.  I can’t quite reveal what it is… but I am not “big” as in with child, hahahaha!  Stay tuned for details. :)  Blessings to you all!

  3. Oh my — I think Sarah’s feathers are fantastic!!! I’m not even ready to ATTEMPT feathers yet, but when I get to that point I’ll be revisiting your wonderful tutorials. Wendy, you are such a generous soul, giving so much to help others through your blog. I’m glad that the quilty love you send out in the Universe is coming back to you, and I’m looking forward to reading about your “big project” when you’re able to discuss it here.
