It's the Quilt Walk Festival in Panguitch Utah this weekend and I can't wait!!! This is my second year teaching at this fun event and I am so excited because Jenny Doan is coming!!! Yippee :) I am teaching my In Your Neighborhood Pattern and my Starburst Pattern ;)
So this weekend has been filled with pattern printing, sample making, and general class preparation. And, I added one other little "Class Project" to finish before Thursday. You remember this top from the Starburst Quilt-A-Long. (Yes, as in 2 quilt-a-longs ago) Well I am sad to say it never got quilted . . . until now ;)
And since it has waited so very long to be quilted, I decided it was going to get some super special custom quilting. And I started with something new . . . a feathered swirl :) Yippee!!!! Here is the top corner.
First off, I have to say that learning feather knowledge from Angela Walter's Craftsy class was so very helpful. But I will admit, I was still scared to death to try this. It was tricky at first, but I am so excited to say that I am now done with the background and by the end of it . . . not scary any more ;) In fact, by the end, I was having fun and loving it. This might just be a new favorite and I am sure it will show up again!!! Yippee!!! I am hoping to share the finished quilt soon, I mean, It has to be done by Thursday, right ;)
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
P.S. If you have noticed my posts are going up a little later than usual, it is because I am running with the high school cross country team in the morning to try and whip me into shape for our Relay in September. I ran 4 miles this morning, longest I have run since I can remember, maybe even ever :) Yippee!!!
