Friday Finishes

 I have some Friday finishes! I finished this wallhanging. I tried something daring on the outside border ~ feathers. I drew the curvy line, then added the feathers. Considering it was first attempt at them, it wasn't too bad.


It's hard to get a photo of the feathers, as I used black thread on the fabric. Maybe brown might have shown up more, but since I'm still learning, it's good to hide some imperfections.

I also have a finished white baby afghan (along with an antique white one).

Next project ????

 I machine appliqued the flowers and basket, and added the borders. I am currently tearing out some poorly done stitching around the outlines. I'll try again!

 Last weekend, our local quilt shop had an auction. I won this Nine-Patch Gatherings book, along with some scrap fabrics.

Some practice free motion quilting. I still have lots more room on this huge piece of fabric to play with.

I'm off to tear our some more stitching.
