Onto the Next Project

While I am finishing off the Drifting Leaves Quilt I have started to prepare the next project...Bethanne Nemesh' Bird Wallhanging. I did a class with her at the Australian Machine Quilting Festival, which was fantastic...the pattern for this little wall hanging was included. From memory hers was done in blue and yellow tones and looked stunning, to say the least.

Mine is going to be in Australian colours...the heat, the dust...the sunburnt country!
Can't wait to get going on this...lots of FMQ quilting coming up using Bethanne's 'Feather Faster' method of stitching spineless feathers across the quilt. Have not fused the birds as yet as I still need to construct the wire they are sitting on. Also wanted to see whether the bird is black enough to stand out from the brown. Looking at my instructions, I think they get fused on after the quilting...? Not sure about this.

Excited about this as I am hanging out to get back to FMQ. Have not done any FMQ other than a bit of doodling here and there for a few weeks.

  2. . Like any highly skilled worker, these tools and machinery too are an important part for any business or factory to flourish. However, many of these testing equipments can be expensive and costly to maintain. Taber
