Birds of a Feather


This is the latest quilt that I have been working on. It's a pattern from the American Patchwork and Quilting magazine. I just absolutely loved the one in the magazine and so have made it using Denyse Schmidt fabrics Flea Market Fancy and Katie Jump Rope. It was really fun to do the applique--I used a blanket stitch. Now to quilt it! I am going to try something new and have a go at free motion quilting. Yikes, I hope I don't ruin it. Actually, I like this quilt so much that I am thinking about doing it again with different background colors and giving them as gifts. So, hopefully I will get a bit of practice with the free motion quilting. The quilt only measures 36"X45" so it should be easy enough to handle in the sewing machine. I hope...
