Elizabeth that quilt is beautiful.  I love feathers and you did a great job on it.  Do you quilt (longarm) for other people?

Judy these are so cute.  I don't blame your husband for wanting to keep them.

I so agree with you Nancy. Unless you love to fish and hunt, the fabrics get kinda bland. I wish they would come up with something fun. This year's muted colors with deer, bear...does nothing for me.  With all the bright colors of the wild flowers, I truly think they could make something amazing. But that's just my thought.

Pat your quilt looks great. You're right, your DGS won't care if each and e Rey point matches but will cherish the quilt you took the time to make.  I think he will have great dreams under it.

Elizabeth I love the colors, perfect for spring or summer. You did an amazing job on the feather quilting. That is a part of machine quilting that intimidates me. So if this quilt has no home, I will definitively give it the best home, love and care.

Angele, feathers scared me to until I found the book Hooked on feathers,  with this technique there is no backtracking and so easy.

Just for grins, I made two of the blocks from the Shop Hop.

 

They are both so cute, I love the umbrella girl.

Pat your quilt looks great to me. We are our own worst critics.

I free motion the quilt on my long arm in the hooked on feathers technique.

 

Elizabeth, I love this pattern, I saw one like it in a catalog. Was it hard to make?

thank you for the book review. I just went to ebay and ordered one. I'm scared to even try feathers, I love the look they give.

Oh, wow, Elizabeth!  You do beautiful work!  I will never be that good with my quilting.  Do you run a quilting business?

Edit:  I see your answer above.  Do you belong to a guild?  That is a good starting point for getting into business.   Take some of your projects for show and tell to let people see the quality of your work, and you'll get some inquiries.  I would take your projects to local quilt stores, too, and ask them if they will distribute your business card when customers ask about quilting.

Weezee, you will LOVE the book it makes feathers soooo easy.  As for the pattern I bought it pattern a year ago at my LQS took one look at the instructions and put it away.  Fast forward a year and my LQS had a class with this pattern.  It is SO easy,  the secret is to construct it in rows from the center out.  What scared me about the instructions is that for each size you cut differant size strips.  Once that was clear easy peasy.  I did the queen size but changed the color order of the border because I wanted the lynbrith to float

What scares me is that it will become work and then will not be fun anymore.  I have passed out cards at my LQS and guild but am very shy at quoting prices.
