If you are fairly decent at quilting feathers (FMQ, freehand, not with a longarm pattern) would you PLEASE post pics of your feather quilting here? I need some inspiration! And apparently, lots more practice.

I have recently pulled my Cathedral Window back out. Life happens and other projects took over my time. My goal is to finish this before I allow myself to start another project. Having a "Fold/Iron" marathon until all needed to finish is complete, then I will go from there. With this concept, I am hoping it will feel like I am moving faster, lol. Is there anyone else working on a CW at the moment?
Kate makes a beautiful stitch and is extremely easy to treadle. But, Lordy is she noisy!! When compared to a National VS and early White VS, the shuttle is a rattle trap. As a result, I am not sewing with it anymore.

I think that top one looks like an old Wilcox and Gibbs, but I never worked on them when I was in the shop-they were just too far and few for me.
Thanks, I thought the top one was a W & G but have never seen one with a motor.

I'm having issues with my ruler always moving on me while I'm cutting long strips of fabric. I have purchased the suction cup handle to place on my ruler & also put the sandpaper dots on the underside of my ruler. What am I doing wrong or how can I correct this issue?
Thank you in advance for all suggestions.
Here are links to the Booms I have finished as well as the blocks for individual swaps I have made and received.
