Kelley - These look great to me!
Kelly the fabric sure does go with it. I think I use big panels of it around the design. Can't to see what you decidee.
Kelly, I keep getting these "sorry " messages when I try to reply. The fabric really sets of the design. I think I would use big panels of it around the embroidery. Can't wait to see what you decide.
Good Grief Kelly this looks wonderful to me.
Yes,Kris "Ladies of the Seas" is very applique' intense, but I found a fabulous secret. I trace all the pieces on to freezer paper, then I use glue stick to fold the seams under before stitching them on the foundation block. It is "Easy Breezy"! I've become the "Sharp Point Queen" lol
Today, DH is finishing the insulation in my sewing room above the garage, so the heat will stay in then perhaps I can really get my dining room back and have a real sewing room - soooo looking forward to that.(another story)! Slept in this morning, until 8 after an intense day (another story) yesterday. But alas that means little or now quilting today. With Thanksgiving Day now less than a week oh my, I'm missing my needle and thread already.
Kelley, the Turkey and turkey fabric is fabulous! that would be too cute!
Kelly ,this is very pretty and I love the thread, did you do this on a home machine? very very nice .Barbara
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
How cute Kelley. I think the fabric is perfect for your embroidery design. Speaking of which, where did you find the cute turkey?
Kelley:I have been playing FMQ tonight

Weren't you the one who was asking me about my Hanukkah placemats? I finally got around to posting a picture of them in my gallery. You can find them in the show and tell spot too.
Yes this was done on DSM my Horizon... I am using embroidery thread in the top and King Tut in the bottom...
I need to practice more but the last couple of days my elbows are killing me .. I dont have a nice cabinet for my Horizon yet ... so it sits on top of an antique cabinet and it is not the right height.. but oh well.. I hope in 3 months or less to have a long arm...
Kelley, your feathers are beautiful! Mine should look that bad. ROFLOL!
I put a label on MQ1 this morning so it is now in a bag ready to take to my neice. I decided after squaring up MQ1 to put feathers in the border. Because there was no extra fabric to hang on to I had my right hand in a very awkward position so I am now wearing a wrist brace. Note to self - make sure my plans for quilting BEFORE I trim the quilt, lol. I've had problems with my wrist before so this is not new, just painful. I am back to quilting on MQ2. My goal is to finish it this month. We'll see, but I am trying to work on it every day. I am ready to finish up some of these UFOs!
Your feathers are gorgeous. I'm like Marilyn and find them scary. I haven't really tried doing them yet. It's on my list of things to do. I've got so many projects going right now that are on the front burner. Then my new year attack is going to be quilting the pile of UFO's. I might have to send my UFO's to you for feathers! Nice job.

I use freezer paper sometimes. My problem is that I don't like to trace. If I can print the pattern directly onto freezer paper I find I work faster. I procrastinate when I have to trace for any reason. (My hand isn't very "sure" so my tracing isn't accurate).
I have worked on a quilt today. I put the last row of blocks around the "bear" quilt and added the border. Now I am finishing up piecing the batting between the layers and getting it ready to finish quilting. Hopefully I will be able to do some quilting tomorrow.
I did do some cutting tonight.. I cut some blocks from my stash for the" home of the brave" quilt blocks .. and maybe tomorrow Ill sew them...
Have a great weekend everyone
