I have had such a busy time lately, but today I have had some time just to sit and enjoy a bit of quilting fun.
Here are some photos of my play time.[caption id="attachment_1584" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Feathers and Circles[/caption] [caption id="attachment_1585" align="aligncenter" width="300"] More feathers and circles[/caption]
I love that I don't have to mark the design first. I love free motion designs that I can make up as I go along. Here I have played with the combination of feathers and circles.[caption id="attachment_1586" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Design to fill into a triangle space.[/caption]
As I have used feathers in the centre of the quilt I like this design to fill the triangles that are a variation on the feather design. These have also been done without the dreaded marking.
For the life of me I am not sure why these photo's are not centering like they should do, but please forgive that they are not doing as they should.
Hope you enjoyed my quick post. I love to share with you and enjoy your comments.

It's been such a long time since I posted, I am going to start today off with a post about the Zig-Zag border I am making for my Roses quilt.
There are many ways to make a Zig-Zag border, I have chosen to use half square triangles.
Here's how it works.
I cut 2 1/2 inch strips from a dark print and a light print then matched the light and dark print fabrics with right sides facing. I used a half square triangle ruler to cut out the pieces. Taking them to the sewing machine and sewing them together with a 1/4 inch seam. I like this method, it's fast and requires very little trimming.
