    Projects Finished Tonight

    I have been piddling around with these things for a while. Finally, I managed to put the finishing touches on all and I am declaring done.

    I have learned some things the primary being I am not a FM quilter. I messed up the "squareness" of the projects which were square before I quilted. Nevertheless, the are finished before I get the tree out and start preparing for Christmas. I have included one picture making it easy to compare the three different configurations.

    The third project was completed about two weeks ago and here is the comparison using different fabrics, quilting, and even changed the pattern so that the feathers were one fabric which made for easier piecing. Which one do you prefer? I am going to try and make a new one with straight borders and better quilting for our fair next summer.

    I like them all, but I think that I like the middle one the best. BrendaK

    They are all darling. I like the feathers all one color -- not worth the work of making them pieced in the finished product. However, I LOVE the checkered border! Great job on all three.

    Super cute and congrats on finishing them 11 months before next Thanksgiving!! LOL I like them all, but that center one really sings to me with the multi-colored piecing and checkered border.

    I know what you mean about the squareness before and not-squareness after quilting. Grrr. CUrrently it's my nemesis on the log cabin I'm trying to bind. MAybe I will have it bound and shipped in time for Christmas, square or not??? !

    I like them all, each has its own personality. In regard to small project that tend to get out of square when you FMQ. Actually, they do it when you do grid quilting also. I like to spritz them with a little water and use pins of foam board and block them. Square every time. Sometimes, I have done this before binding them.

    They are superb, a lot of work for small projects. I think your colour choices send them over the top. Great job.

    They are all great! I see no problems, only cuteness. Love all your different fabric choices. Looks like they were fun projects.

    I think they are all great. I took a class on Jackie Gering's Walking Foot Quilting at a local shop, and that was SO helpful. She has a couple on Craftsy too.
