Thread Talk from my Sewing Machine #42

Dear Friends,  I hope you are doing well.  Life has been sort of a blur for me in the last few days as I worked to meet a few non-negotiable deadlines!  I had heard from some of you that you were not able to leave comments on my Cottage Chic Christmas quilt.  I am sorry about that.  I am not quite what was wrong.  I am guessing whatever it was, it was temporary on WordPress’ end.

Here is a snapshot of one of the three quilts I had shipped out in the last week or so.  You can see that it is quilted feather wreath, but with a lighthearted informal feel.  My feather lobes don’t all look the same in size or style.  They almost look like they are up to mischief or something – which is not totally outrageous in light them being quilt on my Monkey Business II quilt there! :)

You will see what I mean by comparing the previous photo with  this next one.  Since all the feathers are the same size, the feel is more uniform and more formal.

Moral of the story:  Experiment with the sizes and styles of your feather lobes to achieve different looks.

Thanks for stopping by!  I will see you again tomorrow, hopefully.

  1. So beautiful and such a different look and feel. Working on the Sweet Sixteen puts me back at the “beginner” level, since I just got it set up a few days ago! Hope to get this “learning curve” under control soon so I can relax and come up with a look a titch closer to yours…LOL! Sometimes I wonder why I don’t stick with the “same old”!!!! Mucho hugs coming your way!!!!! D

  2. For some reason, the comment section is not showing up on your posts when I go directly to your blog. If I click on “comments” from the post that came to me via email, then I can see the comments and post.

  3. I love love love the first one. I think I can do that. At least I am going to try.
    BTW retreat was fantastic. I also wish you could have been there.

I’m really curious about how this will affect things in the long term but it’s probably hard to tell with all the current changes we see happening.
