It must be every quilters' dream to produce workmanship like this, but unfortunately, I am nowhere near this level of work. I thought I did quite well with these quilts and
not too bad with this one ...
...but let's be honest I've still got a long way to go :-)
So onto this month's offering - first some practice.....
...not brilliant, but a couple of lessons learnt!
I must reposition my hands more often.
I must practice echo quilting - this is awful
I must stop being afraid of my machine
I found these small feathers more difficult than larger ones on a quilt
Bearing all this in mind, for my folder sample I decide to go with what I feel I do best, and that's free form feathers a la Patsy Thompson which I've been practicing forever! Still not perfect, but something I feel more comfortable with.
Don't get me wrong, I am a great fan of Diane Gaudynski and her work, and who knows - maybe one day I will be able to quilt these wonderful feathers !!
