Today I started to quilt this disappearing nine patch quilt, I had planned on doing simple quilting then I decided I needed more practising FMQ feathers. So I have used variegated thread to do feathers in the black fabric. By about 9pm my shoulders were aching so thought I would leave the rest until tomorrow, laid it across the couch to admire it and guess who had to test it!!!!
His name is Oliver!!!!!!!
I have now finished the quilting, I have quilted feathers on the outer border in black thread. You will notice on the closeup photo some little bugs have escaped from the quilt WELL!!
I just love the saying " There is no such thing as a mistake! it is an artist opportunity"
while stitching on the border I found a small hole in the fabric OK so unpicking is something I just do not like to do! But really I think it adds interest to the quilt and a talking point.
