    Feathers and Pebbles Mini Quilt

    I've been showing all my long arm quilts lately - had to take a break and hit the domestic machine for a bit! Just playing with this...you guys know how I love my "in progres" pictures!!! LOL* I fall in love with what I'm doing and just can't contain myself...have to share!





    ...and here is a shot of the fabric I used on the back - I think the quilting looks as cool on the back as the front!



    Hopefully I'll be doing this type of work on my long arm soon!!

    Gorgeous! It won't be long when you are doing that kind of work on the LA. I never did get any good at FMQ on my domestic.

    you do beautiful work! one thing that this wip shows is how much the dense quilting draws in the quilted area. what gets me is... when i commit to the density, i get tired thinking how long the rest of it will take

    This is beautiful quilting! I don't how you do that on your domestic. I'm sure you'll be doing that kind of quilting on your LA soon.

    That is really stunning pumpkin!! I just took a class on Craftsy by Cindy Needham on this type of quilting and your quilt reminds me of what she was teaching. Did you happen to take her class? She'd be so pleased with what you've done. I have a long arm too and seeing this makes me want to hop on my Juki for a little while and make one of my own. But I have some customer quilts to get done first. I recently completed a wholecloth on the longarm and it turned out pretty good, but I'm thinking it might have been easier on the dsm! And I wish I'd watched her class first Anyway, your quilt is just beautiful!!!!!~and I'm sure you can do this on your LA as well. Give it a try

    Thank you!!! Your words mean so much!!!

    Lin - no I haven't taken one of Cindy's classes but I just adore her work!!! She among many others are a huge inspiration for me. My guild is very small and I don't think we could afford to have her come out and teach - but maybe I'll take one of her Craftsy classes one days!! She has a great wealth of information to share, and is especially knowledgeable about THREAD!!! One of my favorite things.

    Love this!
    I find if I draw out a design I can produce similar results but am no good at all when I try to free hand it! lol
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    You give me hope that some day I'll be able to do work like that. Bought a long arm about a month ago and am still practicing on muslin. And by the look of it I'll still be working on muslin this time next year.

    Fabulous quilting. I'm sure you'll be doing it on the longarm before you are much older. Thanks for sharing.
