This is what is up on my design wall at the moment. I don't really have a plan for the next step. All the little circles are fused on but the big circle is just pinned at the moment. I thought of doing some kind of freehand feathery quilting in hot pink thread, or quilting more rows of circles, or maybe both. Any suggestions?
It wasn't all bad this summer though. I managed to get some quilty stuff done - yay! I need to get some photos off the camera's memory card and onto the computer soon so I can share them. There are a few obligatory photos of Miss Millie the cat but you probably don't want to see them. Some glorious sunsets too, and probably a couple that are quilt-related thrown in for good measure.
The photo above was taken on a gorgeous summer day when I washed the quilt that is usually on my bed. It is a simple 'turning twenty' quilt and it's the first one I ever did freehand feathers on when I got my longarm quilting machine. I want to make another one that is in brighter colours but I need to make it so big that I've been putting it off. Maybe I'll gather up all my hand-dyed fabrics and make one like the wonderful quilts that Melody Johnson makes. I love her work!!
