Friday evening relaxation

After driving home from Florence through heavy rain storms and traffic I settled in to finish quilting this top for Heart Builders.  It is the last one so I can send all of them.

I have been really trying to stretch my machine quilting skills by trying new hand guided patterns.  The one I mastered this time was the orange peel.  It was a little awkward at first but by the end of the quilt I was fairly comfortable.  Feathers were mastered long ago.

Here are pictures from this morning where the light and shadow were perfect.


  1. Beautiful quilting! You have been productive.

  2. Great photo - perfect light and shadow! - LOVE the texture on this quilt! "Orange Peel" is one of my favorite designs - loos like you mastered it quite nicely - ;))

  3. Excellent! I have only been able to do this design if I mark it first, and that gets tedious. You have done beautiful work--love the feathered border, too. :)


Gribbit - I'd love to hear from you.
