Have a happy Thanksgiving

I have been busy quilting although I haven't posted for a while.  Most recently I finished a black on black quilt which just about did me in.  Much as I love the look of black backgrounds - they are so difficult to see the quilting on and are hard on my aging eyeballs. I couldn't get a decent picture of it.

Margret brought me two wall hangings to quilt -  she had planned to quilt them with her sewing machine but never got around to it.  I really like the look of the colored thread (Glide) on the feathered star quilt. 


Margret is a very experienced piecer so her quilts were precisely made and a pleasure to quilt.

This quilt had lots of blank space for me to play in and I did get a little carried away.  On this quilt I used So Fine so I could do a lot of quilting and have a better chance of hiding any backtracking.


My next quilt is a whopper and should take me through Thanksgiving to complete.

Have a happy Thanksgiving! 


  1. That Feathered Star is especially beautiful! Hope Margret's piecing hasn't spoiled you because Phebe ... well, she has a mind of her own regarding precision piecing, lol. Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Gorgeous quilting--I'm rather in awe! :)

  3. I'm not generally a fan of the colored thread, but your use of it on the feathered star is stunning. It is a great accent without taking the focus away from the rest of the quilt. Oh, I would love your beautiful craftsmanship on some of my quilts. I love peeking at your blog every once in a while! Beautiful!
