FMQ progress

Update from yesterday...progress on the blank canvas. This is the continuation of my exploration of Patsy Thompson's Feather DVDs. For inspiration or if you have not seen some of her feather work go to Patsy Thompson Designs ...and be amazed.

Endless possibilities

Hyperquilting a pointy heart feature
I am using Aurifil 50/2 and just used the colours I had (I can only get the thread at a particular shop in the city). A more contrasting colour would have obviously stood out more but I also like it in this softer tone.

My pointy heart in-lining is a tad too pointy, I reckon. However, must say, I quite like makes for an interesting texture. I got this little nip going all around the wreath. This was a lot of fun to do. Also did some pearls in the spine...there were other designs I could have tried but this stencil provided a fairly narrow spine of 1/4" and in the end I thought the pearls would look best.

Now need to figure out what to do next in terms of surrounding the wreath.

  1. Karin, I have long been an admirer of your work. This feather quilting in just beautiful. I hope to one day be half as good as you are.

  2. Gorgeous work Karin, I went back and took a look at how you transferred the design too - it's really smashing and your fmq is just perfect :)

  3. What a transformation! That is awesome! This is obviously your calling.

  4. It's getting better and better! And it was already perfect!

  5. Amazed as usual! Love seeing your pics.

    p.s. you have word verification on.

  6. Your quilting is gorgeous! As usual! I am definitely looking into those DVDs. You're inspiring me!
