One of the biggest things that quilting adds to my life is the learning curve. Because a lot of quilters, myself included, work on several projects at one time and set some projects aside, we look at things through different eyes when they are resurrected from a drawer or box months, or even years later. I used to say "I should have done...." and now I say, "Next time, I'd do this." By changing that statement, it validates that what I have in my hands is still a great project worth continuing on, but that I've grown in my quilting abilities. And that's a really good feeling to me.
I know I've posted pics of this project before, but I now have one column of feathers finished. This is the first time I've free hand marked and hand quilted feathers.
hand quilting thread)ready to go with a package of needles already threaded. So rust became the color of choice. Funny how I justified that design decision.
Here is another project that has been brought back to life. It started with a charm pack that become the border, I've had the pot sewn on for months and now its' time to put some flowers in the pot. I'm keeping it simple to get it finished. This project has not been made for any one person, so finished will be good. I love the colors so it might end up on my office wall.
