    Quick Trip

    I love Eleanor Burns. This is one of her Quick Trip Quilts. And yes, you can make it in a few hours (the top, anyway). The photos do not show the entire quilt. There is a border that I did not get in the shot. Maybe when I finish quilting the border I'll get a shot of the whole thing. And I quilted it on my vintage Featherweight.

    I love the colors and the fabrics.

    Looks great! I'm impressed that you quilted it on the featherweight. I too love the Quick Trip pattern.

    Very nice. I'm anxious to see the entire quilt once it is finished. I like your feathers.

    I love the fabrics and colors. You do absolutely wonderful work quilting. I is amazing to imagine your doing those beautiful patterns on your featherweight.

    Your colors and quilting are just excellent. How did you ever do the quilting on the FW? I have one and am just mastering SID!!!

    Beautiful quilt of colors! I think I have a few of the same fabrics. Good job quilting it on a feather weight! That would be a challenge for me.

    The secret to any free motion work is practice. I teach FMQ and tell my students to expect to practice about a hundred hours before you feel confident. Stitch in the ditch is best done with a SID foot; it is harder to do with a darning foot, but I did it that way for years until I discovered the SID feet.
    Also, this is a small quilt, so it is very easy to maneuver.

    Featherweights just straight up rock, don't they? I wouldn't sew on anything else! I love your TATW! I have that book & need to get the show on the road on one. I think one can be made from FQ's if I remember correctly. I love yours! Thanks for the inspiration!

    The fabrics are wonderful! I would have never put them together, but they work great together!

    Very pretty and I agree, they are quick and look amazing. Still have one to quilt (I couldn't stop myself after I bought the book!) and love the feathers you quilted. I'm going to dig mine out and put it on the quilting pile. Thanks for sharing. It's quite lovely.
